RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -The remaining 47 pit bulls seized from suspended NFL star Michael Vick's dogfighting operation are being placed with rescue organizations.
Federal judge Henry E. Hudson on Thursday signed off on recommendations by the court-appointed guardian for the dogs from Vick's Bad Newz Kennels operation.
Rebecca J. Huss, an animal law expert, recommended the dogs be placed with eight organizations, including 22 to Best Friends Animal Society in Utah and 10 to Bay Area Doglovers Responsible About Pit Bulls in California.
The transfers should take place within the next month, according to Tom Shaer, a spokeman for Huss.
Vick faces up to five years in prison when he is sentenced Monday for his role in a dogfighting conspiracy that operated on his 15-acre property beginning in 2001.
Vick and his co-defendants still face state charges in Surry County in southeastern Virginia.
