San Diego shelter to get "Sacks for Vick"

Main Line Animal Rescue is making good on its promise to donate "sacks for Vick" to a shelter in every city where the Eagles play a road game. This time the beneficiary is the Helen Woodward Animal Center in San Diego. 

The Chester Springs rescue placed an ad in the San Diego Union Tribune last week announcing it would donate five bags of food every time Michael Vick is sacked in today's game against the Chargers.

Of course, the fact Vick has spent more time on the bench then on the field isn't stopping the donation challenge. Founder Bill Smith says so far one ton of food has been donated for the Woodward Center, a favorite of actress Diane Keeton who has adopted dogs from them.

The donated chow will go toward the shelter's "Ani-meals" program that delivers pet food to the homebound who are unable to shop for their pets.

Last month, the shelter rounded up four tons of food and delivered it to the Washington (D.C.) Humane Society (and proved they could not only schlep pallets of dog food, they could parallel park a moving van on the crowded streets of Georgetown).
