Calif. Group Comes to the Aid of Vick's Pit Bulls

The lives of all but 2 of the 49 dogs seized in the Michael Vick dog-fighting case are being spared, thanks to several rescue organizations. Roughly half of the 47 dogs are in foster care and could soon be available for adoption.

Ten of the dogs are in Oakland, Calif., where the pit-bull advocacy group BADRAP is using training sessions designed to socialize the dogs and make them suitable for life as a pet.
