Dogs Deserve Better: Chain Off 2011 Freedom for Chained Dogs

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

I did not list a ceiling on my fundraising goal because this is my first year and I do not want to "underestimate" the caring capabilities of my community and friends.

My poster dogs this year are Justice and Lola. They both spent their lives, prior to being rescued and removed, on a chain. Justice's teeth are all ground down, some to the jaw bone, from trying to free himself from his chained prison. Lola will always carry the "Chain Scar" that she has from her chain being imbedded into her neck that had to be surgically removed.

Chain Off has been held annually around the 4th of July since 2004, highlighting the reality that while Americans are celebrating their own freedom, there are tens of thousands of Man's Best Friends in every state who are still not free: America's chained and penned dogs. These dogs are found in backyards stretching from Delaware to Alaska, from Maine to Hawaii, throughout the provinces of Canada, and in countries around the world.

Chaining a dog for extended periods of time is cruel and inhuman. Please help me bring awareness and to support the HB 826 and SB 972 the bills would limit the amount of time that a dog could be chained outdoors.

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!

“… to be free is not just to cast off one’s own chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” - Nelson Mandela
