Meet Chris.  He's a sweet and loving guy who is currently living in a foster home in SC.  He spent over a year living in an outdoor kennel before he was rescued by a good Samaritan who wanted to give him a better chance in life.  He's blossomed into a true gem who is a wonderfully personable, expressive dog who is JOYFUL. He is happy and sweet and loving and playful and great with dogs, kids, cats and people..   He's housetrained and one bundle of energy.  Please give him a chance by volunteering to foster or adopt this sweet boy.  He promises that he'll try his best to make your life one big fairy tale. 

Chris apparently sustained an eye injury early in life which left him blind in one eye, which was recently removed.  That doesn't slow him down though.  He was also recently treated for heartworm.  Please consider giving Chris a chance by volunteering to foster or adopt him.  He's got his bags packed and is ready to travel to the DC area if only a foster or adopter willing to take him in upon his arrival can be found soon.

You can also help save dogs like this one by becoming a foster, providing a rescue dog with a temporary home and giving them the love and care they need until they are permanently adopted. Every person who fosters is directly responsible for saving the life of a dog, because we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families available to welcome them into their homes. If you think you might be interested in becoming a foster and want to learn more, please go to http://foster.ddbnova.org and fill out an application.

Dogs Deserve Better of Northern Virginia is an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue that primarily adopts to families in the DC Metro area.

About Dogs Deserve Better of Northern Virginia

About Our Rescue Group...

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 affection, exercise, social interaction, and sometimes even basic nourishment. They live as prisoners, yet long to be pets.

Chaining is not only inhumane for dogs, but is dangerous to the community. Chained dogs, unsocialized with humans, can become very territorial of their tiny space, and anyone who wanders into this space can be attacked.

Would you for one second choose to live the life of these dogs? No matter what reason is given, the bottom line is that it is NOT ok to chain a dog for life. Dogs should not have to live chained or penned as prisoners, yearning for a place in a family, craving acknowledgement, respect, and love. They DESERVE BETTER, and we as caretakers have the obligation to provide it for them.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our dogs are located in foster homes in the DC Metro area. Please go to http://adopt.ddbnova.org and fill out an application, and once you have been approved, we can schedule a meeting with a dog who will be a good fit for your home.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the process is to complete an adoption application at http://adopt.ddbnova.org.
Secondly, we will set up a time for you to meet the dog in his or her foster home. If the visit goes well and the dog appears to be a good fit for your home, the next step is the home visit. Finally, the official adoption contract is signed and the adoption fee is paid.
