Main Line Animal Rescue in Pennsylvania, known for some unorthodox tactics like using billboards in Chicago to try to get Oprah to do a show on puppy mills, started a new campaign after convicted dog-abuser Michael Vick was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles- they take out newspaper ads in the city of every team that the Eagles play, encouraging fans to volunteer for animal charities on game day and promising to donate 5 bags of dog food to local shelters and rescues for every time Vick is sacked in that game.

The problem, of course, is that Vick isn’t getting that much playing time and is hard to catch besides, so MLAR has been pledging a certain minimum contribution. But the campaign has been so successful that donations of additional dog food have been pouring in from multiple sources. So much so that after Vick was sacked three times in the Eagles/Redskins game, MLAR was able to bring four tons of dog food to the Washington DC Humane Society, which will distribute it among multiple local shelters.
