Vick Invited to Attend Kick-Off of Philly Dog Adoption Event

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 19, 2009) - Philadelphia Eagles' Michael Vick has been invited to attend the launch of "Wally's Week", a dog adoption event in support of the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) at Tavern 17 in the Radisson Plaza-Warwick on Thursday evening at 5:30 p.m.

Wally's Week is a dog adoption stimulus promotion created by author Marsha Boulton. (For more information on Marsha and Wally's Week please go to her website www.marshaboulton.com)

In the recent past, Ms. Boulton has put on Wally's Weeks for over two dozen shelters and agencies in Canada and the United States including the ASPCA in New York City and New York's Animal Care and Control facilities as well as an alliance of over 30 shelter and rescue agencies in the Tampa Bay/St. Pete's area - with great success.

PAWS is a registered charitable organization dedicated to saving and finding homes for Philadelphia's most vulnerable animals, many of them abandoned pit bulls.

If the Philadelphia Eagles are sincere about their support for Mr. Vick and his commitment to abused and homeless dogs in the community then surely the place to start showing that support is at home. If Mr. Vick is short-leashed at training camp, organizers of "Wally's Week" hope the Eagles' front office will send a representative ready to make some tails wag.
