HumaneWatch.org Releases Full Page Attack Against Michael Vick – Vick Is Not Amused

Jeromie Williams Eats The Internet For Breakfast

On the heels of rumours and then confirmation that convicted dog fighter and killer Michael Vick adopted a new dog into his family with the full support and blessing of the Humane Society of the United States, the industry watchdog HumaneWatch.org released a full page attack ad today in USA Today denouncing both Vick and the HSUS.

Not surprisingly, Michael Vick is not amused.  He’ll have to forgive animal lovers, if his protests fall on deaf ears.

The ad focuses on the actions of both Michael Vick and his fighting, drowning, electrocuting, hanging and shooting of dogs and the support he received from the HSUS and its president Wayne Pacelle after his release from jail in exchange for a $50,000 donation from the Philadelphia Eagles. Why is it important to note where the money came from?  It so happens that the Eagles are Michael Vick’s employers.

Insert your “Ah ha!” moment here.

The ad that was run this morning in USA Today has galvanized both sides of the debate, causing a mini Facebook war to break out between the two camps.  Take a look for yourself and decide what you think of the ad.

The ad resulted in Michael Vick taking to his Facebook page to cry foul about being called out on his violent past in a vernacular that sounds not like it was penned by Vick himself, but highly paid publicists and lawyers from HSUS.  Although HSUS claims they have not, and never will take money from Vick, they were happy to let him plug their donation page today.  I digress, because you can read for yourself what he said.

Today a lobbyist group, funded by industries that cause harm to animals, attacked the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and me in a full-page ad in USA Today. The goal of the Center for Consumer Freedom is to damage HSUS and its ability to advocate on behalf of animal welfare.

HSUS works tirelessly on behalf of animal welfare across the country. The industries causing harm to animals are being pushed to make real, positive changes, and they don’t want to change. I am proud to support the HSUS’s work to protect dogs, and I urge everyone to join the organization as a member at (donation page redacted by author).

Picking up the ball tossed to them by Vick, the HumaneWatch Facebook page quickly pivoted and tossed back a three pointer from mid court, nailing the basket with a shot that was all net.

Michael Vick is speaking out about our USA Today ad—and attacking us! This, from the nation’s most notorious convicted dogfighting kingpin. Why don’t you leave Vick a message and let him know what you think? (Link below.)

The fact that HSUS would bring a convicted dog torturer into its ranks is almost as unbelievable as the idea that Michael Vick wrote this post himself. Note that when Vick (that is, HSUS) refers to “animal abusers” what he (HSUS) really means is farmers. By that logic, Michael Vick continues to abuse animals every time he eats a cheeseburger. HSUS only gives one percent of its budget to pet shelters, rips off Americans with deceptive advertising, and gets a “D” grade from the American Institute of Philanthropy. Michael Vick and HSUS deserve each other.

HumaneWatch makes an extremely valid point when they bring up the fact that not only does the HSUS not support animal shelters with more than one percent of the donations they receive, they are also not affiliated with any animal shelters as they often attempt to imply on the down low that they kinda sorta might be – wink wink, nudge nudge.

To give you all a recap of why this ad has caused so much attention, and just what lead to it, a little history lesson from Wikipedia might be in order.

In July 2007, Vick and three other men were charged by federal authorities with felony charges of operating an unlawful interstatedog fighting venture known as “Bad Newz Kennels.” Vick was accused of financing the operation, directly participating in dog fights and executions, and personally handling thousands of dollars in related gambling activities. Federal prosecutors indicated they intended to proceed under the powerful provisions of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization.

So there you have it folks.  As one organization tries to cash in on the fame and notoriety of a convicted animal killer while claiming to have animal rights as their mandate, another stands on the side of animals and calls out the obvious hypocrisy of the situation and is asking the tough questions.

What side do you stand on?  Leave a comment below and tell us.

  1. He should never be allowed to be an NFL player again either. All felons should be banned. They are not good role models for children!
    If you have not read the book about how he abused and killed dogs. ….you should. We should all be Vick haters.

  2. Michael Vick is nothing but a piece of shit murdering nigger! He should not be able to own a goldfish! If his kid’s wonder why they can’t have a pet they should be told what their Father did! I hope that one day somebody hits him so hard on the field that he cannot move an inch and has to lay there and be miserable the rest of his life! Shame on the Eagle’s, Subway and especially Nike for giving that Bastard any kind of contract. I’ll make sure they never get any of my money again! Boo Michael Vick!

  3. Hey Vick… you are a dick. We hate you. we hate any football team that signs you. we hate any product that endorses you. Go away, give up the dog you just got. A Malinois is a working dog designed for K9 units and guard dogs. Totally inappropriate for children ‘to learn how to care for a dog.’ You are not an example to show anyone how to care for a dog. GO AWAY!

  4. Unfortunately Pacelle should know the chances of Vick ending up on death row is almost a certainty according to The Link which Pacelle warns people about – but we already know that is a lie, using non scientific research but rather social research, the creeping socialism way of social change. The damage done by Pacelle and his cohorts in the animal rights social movement to one breed of dog which has almost ended this breed can not be salvaged by his link to Vick. Pacelle uses people and Vick is one of them. It is tragic that Vick had no one who instilled empathy in his life and things could have been very different for Vick. The first statement I heard him say years ago was “That is what we do where I come from” , seemingly unapologtic. Vick would be better served to seperate himself from the radical animal rights organization and do his own thing and get out of Wayne’s shadow. Maybe Vick and Pacelle do have something in common. Vick killed animals by his own hands, Pacelle uses our government through regulations to do it for him. Fifty percent of dogs picks up in his large van are euthanized. There is not much difference between Vick and Pacelle really, you see. Pacelle wants no one to use an animal for anything ever, not food, not pets, not entertainment and not for lifesaving research. What Pacelle is doing is a form of anti capitalism in all animal industries to end them. I would venture to say the animal rights organizations have taken multiple trillions of dollars out of USA economy in the last 6 or 7 years. Fifty five billion just in the cattle industry in California. Pacelle should be ashamed. There may be hope for Vick in the end, so maybe Pacelle could become VBF of all those human lives ruined by confiscating their dogs or cats, without ever going to court or the owner found guilty of anything. Like holding a gun to someone’s head, saying, give me your animals or go to jail.

  6. We all know that Vick the Pri_ never even served time for the torture and murder of the dogs only for facilitation of dog fighting – so right there justice was never done. You should be commended for exposing the HSUS for only looking to profit from the money, but seriously how many people are all for paying Vick (a convicted felon) millions of dollars to still kick a foot ball around? If someone else walked into the NFL or any sports or government job for that matter, being a convicted felon would knock them right out of the running for a job – so where is the justice and whose really to blame. I hate to say we all are because we let this kind of plea bargaining go on all the time. Money talks but you’ve made a start and we must all raise up and be ‘made as hell and NOT take it anymore’.

  7. I will never give the human society a dime.. to support that demon . I am beyond disgusted.. from the start with the NFL.

  8. I wonder how much Vick’s children are aware of in regard what their dirtbag dad did. What were they told when their pet dogs disappeared? What were they told when daddy was thrown in the clink for 548 days? Vick has become a *person of interest*…being watched by 10,000 eyes and being listened to with a million ears. If he puts one TOE wrong in regard to the dog now living in his home, the chances of his being lynched increase astromonically. Hang this stinking bastard from the highest tree, I say! When Vick finally dies, he will go to a place from where there is no escape. P.S: The Phila. Eagles are out of their tiny minds! Vick is a mediocre player who is injury prone. He sits out more games than he plays. He has missed 23 regular season games and two pre-season games in his career. In a nine year NFL career, Vick has only played ONE SEASON all the way to the end. His salary for 2012? 12.50 MILLION BUCKS. Shameful.

  9. So in all of this, the HSUS is the lesser of two evils. The fact that CCF called them on this forgiving Vick BS, I can appreciate. However, the CCF will stop at nothing to stop legitimate animal welfare groups. The people who made that ad are animal abusers themselves. They couldn’t care less about those poor dogs, and are just looking for a way to make animal rights organizations look bad. That being said, there are better orgs to support than HSUS. It is also important to note that HSUS isn’t all bad, they have done some good things as far as pro-AR legislation. Overall, still shady. Bottom line is that HumaneWatch AKA Center For Consumer Freedom is a ruthless organization run by people who line their pockets with blood money. Money from fast food, big agribusiness, etc. CCF openly opposes MADD. Doesn’t that make you question them?

  11. I love your organization for having the chutzpah to place an ad like this. Hell, if I had the money I would do it myself. He should have had his children taken away, and certainly had a life long ban on owning animals of any kind. Any person with decency and compassion would realize he is a sick person, and for an avid animal lover, such as myself, well let’s just say I have a few choice words for him (and perhaps an action or 2).
    Bravo!

  13. I absolutely side with HumaneWatch. HSUS is a money-grubbing business, and Wayne Pacelle himself makes $250,000 per year. No one in their right mind would hand vick an animal. He has argued that his kids should get to know a pet and that it’s unfair that they be punished for what he did. However, he took the last family pets he had in threw them into the ring as bait dogs. He admitted this. He admitted the thrill and laughter he and his associates got from doing it, as well as from electrocuting, beating, hanging, and shooting dogs (not to mention watching them tear each other apart). The Humane Society is the only animal rights organization that believed he should own an animal again, and, as stated, they got money from the eagles organization. When you bring this up to them, they twist their answers and deflect onto other topics.

  20. This is a simple choice and I will leave it to you to answer…. A man abuses his wife a woman who in front of family friends and god takes a bond for life, yet through conflict raises his hand against his wife and abuses her, he then says he’s sorry “it will never happen again” does it? How many men continue abusing and if not in this relationship the next. People use the word owner and pet when referring to their dogs if they abuse that relationship what do you think the out come of this people care more for people they marry then their relationship with their dog and yet they reoffend. What hope is their for our animals and the people who abuse them. My position is obvious! What’s yours?

    • I know that money trumps everything in our world. It doesn’t mean that I have to like it. Michael Vick is a murderer in my eyes. He killed thinking, feeling, fellow creatures for money and “entertainment” and I think there is a special hell for him. It makes me ill that the HSUS takes his money (or money from the Eagles) to make it okay that he gets to control another life. I hope he understands that we are all watching this poor dog and hoping that he will treat it right.
