O.A.R. Wants to Help End Dogfighting

Singer Marc Roberge says the Michael Vick case has inspired him to help.

O.A.R. singer Marc Roberge just wanted to do something good for dogs. “The whole dogfighting thing with Michael Vick…really [upset] me, and I wanted to get more involved,” Roberge told the Boston Globe.

So before the band’s recent gig at Boston’s Tweeter Center, Roberge met with several representatives from Animal Rescue League, who brought along a few formerly abused pit bulls for the singer and his guests to meet.

Roberge already owns five dogs, so adopting an Animal Rescue League dog wasn’t an option. But he says the band’s foundation, called the Heard the World Fund, is committed to helping needy animals and will donate money to several animal welfare organizations, including those that help rehabilitate abused pit bulls. “Dogs always get the short end of the stick,” he says.

O.A.R. is best known for singing the theme song “So Much” for ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” Their latest album, “Live from Madison Square Garden,” is in stores now.
