The Voice of Reason: Francis Battista of Best Friends weighs in on Michael Vick’s adoption application

Apparently the motto for my week is going to be, “Ask, and you shall receive.”  Because no sooner did I voice my somewhat untempered opinion on the notion of Michael Vick as future rescue dog adopter and Humane Society of the United States partner, than did Francis Battista, co-founder of Best Friends Animal Society–and the true spokesperson for the majority of the Vicktory Dogs rescued from Vick’s property–weigh in, once again, on the troubling presence of Michael Vick in the animal welfare community.

Thank you, Francis, for your profound voice amidst the clamor and the din.
