About Our Rescue Group:DOGS DESERVE BETTER is a nonprofit organization
dedicated to freeing the chained dog, and bringing
our 'best friend' into the home and family.
Dogs Deserve Better, 2003 First Place Winner of the ASPCA/Chase Pet Protector Award, is a voice for chained and penned dogs, whose sadness speaks only through the eyes. As the days become years, many of these dogs sit, lay, eat, and defecate within the same 10-foot radius. Chained by the neck, they exist without respect, love, exercise, social interaction, and sometimes even basic nourishment. They live as prisoners, yet long to be pets.
Come Meet our Pets:Most of our dogs have lived a great deal of their life outdoors with little socialization and human contact. We hold monthly adoption events. Please email us for the next date and location.
If you would like to meet any of our available dogs, please contact us so we can set up a meeting.
