BADRAP’s 2018 Shelter Dog Celebration Calendar

October 27 of this year will mark the tenth anniversary that the federal government officially green-lighted the release of the dogs seized from Michael Vick's infamous dog fighting operations to new beginnings. Ten years! So much has changed for the better since the dogs showed us that rescued pit bulls deserve a chance to be seen as individuals and whenever possible, welcomed into caring homes.
 
To honor this historic anniversary, we're giving
a very special gift to one lucky Animal Shelter.
Please help us decide which one!

All summer long, BADRAP co-founder and celebrated sculptor Tim Racer has been busy carving a portrait of beloved 'Vick dog' and Poster Boy Jonny Justice. Our goal is to identify an animal shelter who will 'adopt' his finished carving and give it a permanent home and special place of honor.

This is a truly special gift. Tim's museum quality dog portraits are carved in the traditional old world Carousel style and are highly sought after by celebrated dogs lovers and collectors of fine art.

Creating a life size likeness of Jonny Justice will take hundreds of hours. It's a labor of love and a way to keep the Vick dog legacy alive long after the last survivor passes on from old age. Please help decide where Jonny's tribute should live! Photo below: 'Sally' was BADRAP's founding dog. Her legacy lives on in our organization's mission and in Tim's carving. Forever with us!
