Vick Attending Humane Society Event

I just read this in our local paper, Vick is scheduled for a visit to Atlanta to attend a Humane Society Event.

Michael Vick canceled a celebration in his hometown of Newport News, Va. so he can attend a Humane Society event in Atlanta.

A spokeswoman for the Humane Society of the United States' national office confirmed Monday night that Vick is working with the animal organization, but had no details.

The Atlanta Humane Society has no affiliation with the national group and a spokesperson said the local organization has no events scheduled with Vick.

Vick was scheduled to attend a celebration in Newport News on Saturday. The event will be rescheduled so Vick can be in Atlanta, event organizers told the Associated Pres.

Vick has been conditionally reinstated in the NFL after completing a 23-month federal sentence for running a dogfighting ring. The Newport News celebration was to be his first announced public event since his freedom.

Has Vick suddenly become a dog advocate trying to right his wrongs? Or is this a publicity stunt, trying to get back in society's good graces?

What I want to know is if Vick becomes a spokesperson for the HSUS is he going to be paid? Because if he is, I have a big problem with that.

Give me a bark, let me know what you think.
