Dogs Deserve Better Rep Program:
No Longer Active

We encourage everyone to make a difference for chained dogs in your area, however, at the current time our area rep program is closed to new reps, due to an inability to successfully monitor behavior and actions that have been detrimental both to the dogs and our organization.

We do have active branches of Dogs Deserve Better in Smithfield Virginia (headquarters), Columbia, Missouri, and Nashville, Tennessee. Below are links to facebook pages where we all post rescues, requests for help, and event details.

We may reopen the program to new reps in the future; in the meantime, please advocate for chained dogs near you as a volunteer. We now offer The Hero Fund Grant nationwide to individuals or other groups who rescue chained dogs, which provides $300 in vet care. By taking action to rescue a chained dog in your community, you are empowering yourself AND saving the life of a dog who needs you. Apply for the grant here.

We also work cases nationwide via our FB page in order to get swift help and action for chained dogs who's living conditions are outside the law. If there is a chained dog near you that you are concerned about, visit our report page to have educational materials mailed and/or a campaign started for the dog.

If you are interested in VOLUNTEERING for Dogs Deserve Better, please find ideas at http://www.dogsdeservebetter.org/volunteer.html

Join Facebook Pages for DDB and our two branch locations here to keep up with our rescues, requests for help, and event locations.
