Your donations save lives! They fund rescue and rehabilitation for chained and penned dogs, community education and action programs, grassroots activism and legislation, and fences so that dogs may safely go outside; donations enable us to rescue and foster chained dogs that are given up by the caretaker and find a loving new inside home for them.

We spay/neuter all rescues, as well as de-worm and immunize. Your donations also fund Hero Fund vet care grants for chained dogs rescued by other groups or individuals nationwide, so the financial burden for them isn't so great.

We envision a day when all estimated 6,000,000 chained and penned dogs in America are brought into the home and family to live. You can help make this dream a reality!

The mission of Dogs Deserve Better comprises the following six principals: advocate and become a voice for dogs living chained or penned outside; educate society to evolve to higher ethical and moral standards for the treatment of dogs living under these conditions; meet with caretakers of dogs chained outside to advocate on behalf of the dogs and discuss other options available to them; fence yards to improve the quality of life for these dogs; provide low-cost or no-cost housetraining for dogs whose caretakers wish to bring them into the home; temporarily foster and find new homes for dogs whose caretakers wish them to have a better life, but are unwilling or unable to provide that for them.

Please help fund our work for chained dogs. It's a large undertaking and we need your help today. Any donations you make are tax deductible.
