Deserve Better provides this link to
other chained dog sites, or even chained dog articles, so that we
can all learn as much as possible and help each other as much as
if you'd like your site added. Dogs Deserve Better will be doing
a basic check of your site to make sure it is legitimate, and then
we will post your link.

The Backyard Dog Project
The Backyard Dog Project is an all-volunteer group that helps owners improve the quality of life for their outdoor dogs.
We focus on neighborhoods where people are often unable to provide basic supplies and veterinary care for their dogs. We strive to help families who are willing to work alongside us to become responsible pet owners. In addition to donated supplies, education in basic pet care and access to affordable vet care we offer guidance in finding alternatives to continuous chaining/penning as a method of pet containment.

Iditarod is described by the Iditarod Trail Committee and by the
Alaskan media as an exciting contest of man against nature. What
the descriptions do not tell us is the untold suffering of the dogs
that often give their lives in this race. Dog deaths and injuries
are common in the Iditarod, and when they are not racing, the dogs
live under inhumane conditions.

The Dogs is one person, D. D. Ritz in Littlerock, CA.
From the site: "For 14 years my job working as a process server
has landed me in places I would never have thought to seek out on
my own. And so, purely by chance I've happened on literally hundreds
of dogs who quietly suffer because no one knows they're chained
up in backyards. No one knows they're sitting in the mud or on frozen
concrete with no water, no shelter, no attention at all."
