    The house and the 15 acres it sits on served as headquarters for the Bad Newz Kennels dogfighting operation.

    Dogs Deserve Better says its ultimate goal is to raise $3 million to buy the site, install fencing and build a facility for the dogs.

    The house would be used for offices.

    The property has five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, two fireplaces, cathedral ceilings, walk-in closets and an attached, two-car garage.
