One possible Design Style, illustrated by Tracy Copes

Dogs Deserve Better, now in our 6th year of advocating for chained and penned dogs, has started planning for a Rescue, Rehabilitation, and Training Center for formerly chained and penned dogs.

In our efforts for these dogs, we are currently fostering and rehoming as many as 700-1000 dogs per year. When working with dogs who’ve spent their lives outside, our biggest task is to train them to live inside the home with the family. With that in mind, it is not in the dog’s best interest for us to build a typical shelter. We must be working to housetrain the dogs and teach them the ways of inside living. So we will build a more advanced facility with living areas, training areas, humane education room.

To that end, we visualize a center that will house 16-24 dogs at a time, in 2-3 separate living areas. Each dog will have access to inside and outside areas, and they will be trained with the other dogs and trainers each day.

Current estimated budget is 1.9 million dollars, if we can get the land donated. We are open to exploring options of building the center in any state in the country, so if you have land which you think might suite our purposes and you're willing to let us look at the possibility, please contact us immediately at 814.941.7447.

We are seeking bequest donations, as well as donations of at least 10 acres of land, hopefully somewhere within a hour or two of a major airport.

Interested in helping a project of this magnitude get off the ground, even bear your name? Please call Tammy Grimes, DDB founder, at 814.941.7447 if you can help.

All major donations toward this center are welcome. If you’re a financial supporter of our work here at Dogs Deserve Better and you can’t give a larger amount for the center, the best way you can help to ensure we build the center and our dream is to continue your financial support for our normal daily operations, which includes vet care for rescued dogs, fencing for dogs brought into the home to live, and education materials for our efforts....if we cannot continue our normal daily operations we will not be here to start a center; so, continuing to support our daily operation budget is absolutely crucial and the best way to see our group vision become a reality! Thank you.

Give dogs like Levi a place to call home!

The Importance of Membership

I'm only just now realizing how important membership is to Dogs Deserve Better as an organization. To you it may add up to a donation with a few side benefits, but to us it provides some measure of sway with the media and other organizations. We’re frequently asked what our membership is, and our immediate goal is to double our membership, from 3500 to 7000 (or 100,000, we don't want to limit ourselves)...the greater numbers we show behind our efforts, the more seriously our efforts will be taken.

Please join today, and ask your family and friends to join, too.
Together we can show the world that we expect chaining to end!
