Michael Vick stars in anti-abuse ad for the Humane Society of America

    The Humane Society of America is calling Philadelphia Eagles’ Quarterback, Michael Vick, a “messenger for the cause” for his role in its latest anti-dogfighting campaign.

    According to the Humane Society of America’s website, Vick is not being paid for his participation in the public service announcements.

    However, he is the face of the national organization’s community based, anti-dogfighting campaign. The HSA is also “trying to engage the NFL and individual players in an effort to attack the problem of dogfighting and other forms of animal cruelty.”
