The mission of Dogs Deserve Better, Inc., is to provide a better life for abused, neglected and abandoned canines; especially those which are chained or penned without human companionship. We strive to accomplish this through advocating for humane legislation; promoting spay and neuter; educating communities on animal welfare; and rescuing and rehabilitating distressed canines. Virginia serves as our headquarters and is the temporary home to 20+ dogs who have been rescued from a life of despair.
We strive to advocate and become a voice for dogs living chained or penned outside and for those who have suffered from neglect or abuse. We work hard to educate society to evolve to higher ethical and moral standards for the treatment of dogs living under these conditions. Often we will meet with caretakers of dogs chained outside to advocate on behalf of the dogs and discuss other options available to them. We work with families to help them provide a better life for their dog and their family. When available, we provide fencing grants to those willing to bring their dogs inside but lack the means to put up a fence so their dog is safe within their yard while spending appropriate amounts of time outside.
