Big Vic the Great Dane

February 17, 2014 at 10:20 am

Saturday, February 8th we were lucky enough to meet an amazing dog that was in need. Big Vic, a 117 pound great dane, ended up in our care at the pet store after being a victim of a dog flipping case. Dog flipping is a problem in Kansas City where people either steal dogs and sell them, buy dogs and resell them, or irresponsibly breed dogs to sell on Craigslist. Who knows how many times this poor guy was passed around before he ended up with us here at City Pets. Our staff rallied around this gentle giant to make sure he would end up in caring hands. We were able to get him placed with a foster through Fur Ever Friends in Madison, KS. He underwent his basic vetting through Tomahawk Animal Hospital and will be available for adoption after he is given a clean bill of health.

Thank you to everyone that helped: Andrea, Kansas City Pet Project, Danita with Fur Ever Friends, Tomahawk Animal Hostpital and to everyone who helped us figure out Big Vic’s story.

If you would like to donate to help with Big Vic’s medical bills, you can do so through Fur Ever Friends’ PayPal account with the email Just mention the donation is in honor of Big Vic in the comment section.
