The Humane Society of Canada has always been opposed to all animal fighting.
NFL player, Michael Vick, has not, and will never be a spokesman for our organization.
More specifically, in a 2007 interview with Maclean's magazine, The Humane Society of Canada’s Chairman & CEO, Michael O’Sullivan said in part:
“Can anybody tell me the names of the fifty dogs that were involved? It’s all been about Michael Vick. I think that this guy – rightly or wrongly – has become the poster child for dogfighting, but in my opinion if nobody can tell me the names of the dogs that suffered, then we’re focusing too much attention on Michael Vick and not enough on the dogs that he mistreated.”
