Dogs Deserve Better
Sponsor US for Your Holiday Gifts!

Do you want your holiday gift giving to be about something more important this year? Sponsor a formerly Chained Dog or Penned Dog, and we will send you or your loved one a personalized gift letter with a picture of your sponsored foster dog and his/her story.

Rocky

• See last year's fosters with their gifts, so touching!

Give a formerly chained or penned foster dog a taste of first-ever Holiday Cheer! As one of Dogs Deserve Better's most beloved campaigns, the annual Sponsor a Fostered Dog program has reached out and touched many a Holiday heart and home.

Just choose one of our special boys or girls and with your donation or gift box sent directly to them, you can ensure that one life is now not only safe from harm, but happy, beloved, and spoiled (as they deserve to be!). Our goal this year is to provide each dog in our program with a $75 gift card, in addition to any extra support needed and your packages. Your sponsor gift may also provide food, housing and veterinary care for Dogs Deserve Better foster dogs throughout the U.S. in the upcoming year, and help teach others about the plight of the chained dogs who are left to languish in the back yard.

IMPORTANT, PLEASE NOTE:**If your gift donation is meant for someone other than you, please provide the information (name and address of recipient and name and address of sender) by clicking on "Gift Name and Address of Receiver". We will then mail out a special gift letter to the address you provide featuring your chosen sponsored dog. If you'd like to mail packages directly to foster parents of a certain dog, please contact Dawn@dogsdeservebetter.org for the foster parent's address. Also, many of you worry that one dog will be left out...not to fear, our dogs share with each other! If mailing packages, you may want to check with Dawn first to make sure your dog isn't receiving more packages than others, so that all dogs receive packages in the mail.**

• Plus, any sponsor donations over $25 will get a FREE 2009 Dogs Deserve Better Calendar. These calendars are being VERY well-received, make a great addition to your home or office. (an $11.00 value)

"I just wanted to thank you for the Foster Holiday program.  My foster dog that was selected, "Desi" has had a ball opening and playing with her new toys, and sleeping on her wonderful new bed. Foster homes do so much for our dogs, that it's so nice that they can have some things for our dogs that they don't have to supply. I love this program. It's just a "happy time".  Thank you for creating it!! Best to you!"

Donte, NC

DonteDonte is a young, active, sweet dog that spent the first 2 years of his life chained. He lived day in and day out in a 10' dirt circle alone and neglected. When DDB rescuers including NC Rep Shari Strader approached the owners they gladly gave him up. The chain around his neck was so tight he had trouble breathing and there are signs of a previously embedded rope or collar. His legs are also scarred from the chain getting wrapped around them. But the worse part is that he has been bitten by a brown recluse spider on his foot and has had to spend weeks in the hospital.

Once the funds ran out we had to take him to a temporary foster home but his injury got worse. He is now back in the hospital and we desperately need help with his medical bills.

To date his vet bills have been well over $1000. We just found out that he got his e-collar off and ate the bandage off his foot and now has to have abdominal surgery for an intestinal blockage. What Donte needs most this holiday season are donations to help with his medical bills. Please remember, every little bit helps! To adopt or foster Donte, e-mail Shari Strader at sdstray40@yahoo.com 336-207.8796. To mail him a package, contact Dawn@dogsdeservebetter.org.

Magnum, PA

I'm Maggie, this is my third year in the Sponsor a Dog Program, and I'd like to thank everyone for the yummy treats from last year! Mom says I'm a special boy, and it would take a special home for me, which is why I'm still here. I have fears that make me a little scary to some people, and mom wants me to be safe and loved, like I am here. Not too many people want dogs like me!

But I'm loads of fun with the ones I love, playing, going for long walks, snuggling in bed. I always like a new collar and leash (a very short leash would be good, so I can stay close to mom), a ton of treats, and a new Washable! bed.

To adopt me, visit the adoption page, or to mail me a package, send it to DDB Headquarters at P.O. Box 23, Tipton, PA 16684.

Beau, OR

Except for a couple of months, this Pit Bull mix lived his life at the end of a chain. Lucky for him, his owner did the right thing and surrendered him to Dogs Deserve Better. Beau is still a little nervous around new people but has come a long way. He is a very sensitive dog and has a very sweet and comical personality.

This 5 year old weighs 70 lbs and still thinks he is a puppy. Beau LOVES his fenced-in backyard. He is very alert and takes “patrolling” the yard very seriously and is a great watchdog. One of his favorite things to do is to lie on his dog bed and play with a chew toy, both of which he has never had. He is not food or toy aggressive. He tolerates his baths very well and likes riding in the car. He now knows how to sit, shake, give a "high five" and lay down.

Beau would appreciate anything but he would love some challenging chew toys. To adopt Beau, e-mail Ruth James-Azevedo at rjainor@msn.com 503-881-6055. To mail him a package, contact Dawn@dogsdeservebetter.org.

Ginger, AL

GingerGinger is a formerly chained American Staffordshire Terrier who had an embedded collar that has been removed and treated. She is between 1 and 1/2 - 2 years old. Ginger is available for foster or adoption.

She really loves people and likes to go on walks and play in the yard. She likes to give kisses and gets along great with other dogs. She would probably do great with an active male dog for a playmate.

Ginger has not been observed with cats so we suggest she go to a kitty-free home. She's too high energy for young children but likes kids. She would make a great dog for someone who could give her lots of attention and love her like she deserves. We believe she could even do well in an apartment as long as she got plenty of walks and exercise.

Ginger would like some tough toys to play with and some yummy treats in her stocking! Donations for Ginger’s vet care are very appreciated. Contact Delaney Sanders, Alabama Area Rep at unchainbama@gmail.com, phone: 205.451.3006. To mail Ginger a package, contact Dawn@dogsdeservebetter.org.

Dudley, OH

GingerDudley is a 4-year-old Shepherd/Husky mix. He is a very good boy BUT, he is very cautious of strangers and new people. Dudley has been through a lot, he had to leave his owner when she was forced to move into a retirement community that did not allow him. Dudley would do very well with other dogs, cats are OK, but needs a home with out small children. Older children would be fine. If you can provide Dudley with a chain free foster or forever home PLEASE contact Marla Dakes at 330-903-0039 or crzylovindoglady@yahoo.com. To send gifts to Dudley email dawn@dogsdeservebetter.org for address.

Maizy, ME

MaizyMaizy is an elder Beagle girl who was recently rescued from life in a pen in upstate Maine. Despite her rough beginning, Maizy is the happiest little Beagle you have ever met. She loves humans, young and old - and greets everyone she meets with kisses. Sadly, there are still 6 other dogs living in pens at Maizy's former "home" who are waiting patiently for foster homes.

Maizy would love a new soft dog bed for the holidays. Like most Beagles, she is a big fan of treats and would appreciate some in her stocking.
If you are in Maine and would like foster one of Maizy's former companions still living outside, contact DDBMaine@yahoo.com. To mail Maizy a package, contact Dawn@dogsdeservebetter.org.

Daisy, NY

DaisyDaisy is a 1-2 year old small shepherd mix who was chained outside 24/7 until the neighbors convinced the owner to let them give her a better life. I actually met her last year when the neighbors first took her in. She is a wonderful girl.

Unfortunately, it has not worked out at her new home (they just don't have the time for her) so now she is going to be coming to me.

To adopt Daisy, contact Caroline Anderson 315-591-8686 e-mail ddb_in_oswego@yahoo.com. To mail Daisy a package, contact Dawn@dogsdeservebetter.org.

Banshee, PA

BansheeBanshee is a purebred black lab who spent the first six years of his life on the end of a chain. He LOVES, loves, loves to play fetch, and will swim all day long if you let him! He needs a job, pure and simple. He's started to exhibit signs of separation anxiety, and the vet says with his high energy, being trapped on a chain for six years, it's suddenly flying out all around him with no place to go! We've begun training him on the treadmill to wear him out a bit, but a home with a pond would be the ideal for him. He is a total love bug, and wants nothing more than to please you. He just needs to be able to understand what it is you want from him, and feel like he's making a contribution to the family. He would love a good washable dog bed, and another martindale collar for when his current one gives out. He adores toys and treats, but most of all he loves Tennis balls...or something similar that isn't so easily destructible!

To adopt him, visit the adoption page, or to mail him a package, send it to DDB Headquarters at P.O. Box 23, Tipton, PA 16684.

Sammy, IN

Sammy Poor Sammy was chained from the time he was a little pup. He was chained inside a fence and pen for the 1-½ years of his life.

He is very thankful to be living inside a warm house with his foster family, but he’s still searching for that perfect place to call his forever home.

Sammy is asking Santa for a new bed, some chewys, treats and some new balls to chase.

To adopt Sammy, contact Marie Belanger, Marion, Indiana 765.517.1532 e-mail chainsoff@sbcglobal.net.

Blackie, CA

BlackieBlackie lived in California where there is a wonderful new anti-tethering law - that didn't apply to her because she lived on a reservation.

She was 13 years old, skinny, nearly bald, had a mouth full of rotten teeth and was emotionally shut down. Now she is chubby, fluffy and shiny with a big puffy plume of a tail and a wonderfully goofy smile.

Because of her age and all she’s been through, Blackie will likely live out her end years with her foster family, which is perfectly A-OK with them! What she would like from Santa is for some kind person to give DDB a donation so that another chained dog could come in from the cold, however, she really likes all natural chicken jerky treats and she always needs dental hygiene stuff (toothbrushes, paste - nubbies).


To mail Blackie a package, contact Dawn@dogsdeservebetter.org.

Scooby, MO

ScoobyScooby is a 4-year-old purebred Collie. His name really fits him because he is full of energy, loves to play fetch and run like the wind. Scooby didn't get much of a puppyhood, he has been chained since he was 6 months old. He still thinks he is a puppy and is making up for lost time! Scooby is very healthy, happy, and energetic and knows his basic commands. And Scooby is available for adoption! On Scooby’s wish list are soft toys and soft treats. He’s asking Santa for a boy like Timmy who will romp, play and be his faithful companion, just like Lassie.

Haddie, ME

HattieHaddie was rescued from life on a chain in upstate Maine. She came to our rescue 25-30 lbs underweight. Sadly, Haddie originated from a loving home, but was re-homed improperly by her original mom, which landed her outside on a tether.

Haddie is now in a wonderful foster home and is on a slow weight gain program. We are not sure if she will be able to placed in the near future, as Haddie has bilateral hip dysplasia which may need surgery. She also has an injured knee. Still Haddie loves to run and play!

She would appreciate a ball or two (she loves Soccer balls and Tennis balls) and a Martingale/greyhound collar. Haddie is also taking Dasaquin supplements for her joints which a very expensive...if anyone is up for donating a bottle - Haddie would be very grateful!

Cody, MO

CodyCody was chained to a fence in front of a place of business with a bowl of water and a piece of tape with his name on it. He was skin and bones!!! His ears were covered with fly strikes. DDB Rep Melody Whitworth had a feeling that he was abandoned. The Humane Society picked him up and they called DDB. Melody has been fostering him ever since. Cody is ready for adoption into his forever family!

Cody is approx. 1 years old, and is now UTD on shots, HW negative, de wormed, neutered, potty trained, and just a big hunk of raw energy! Not a mean bone in this boy’s body! He gets along great with the other dogs, and would really make a great one on one companion dog. Cody is very easy going with all people and pets, but stays focused on his leader! He loves to ride in the car and would also be a great employee at the workplace!

Cody does not do well being left alone for he desperately wants to be joined at the hip with his master and will be a devoted pet forever if someone would give him the chance! P.S. Cody is an avid fetcher. On Cody’s wish list this year are lots of balls for fetching, treats and toys. Most of all Cody is asking Santa for his forever home.

Hudler, IL

HattieI'm Hudler! A nine year old Dalmatian who spent most of her life on a chain. Her guardian said she did bring her in when it was extremely cold outside. She was given up when the caretaker became pregnant and decided that Hudler was too much work for her.

Hudler’s foster family had just lost their family Dalmatian after 15 years. It was a difficult decision to bring Hudler into their home while they were still in mourning.

However, they knew how much they loved their family Dalmatian and wanted to give Hudler a chance to find a home of her own, so they took Hudler into their home to foster.

Hannah Banana, ME

HannahHannah Banana was seized as part of a neglect case. She was found almost starved, living in a utility trailer with multiple other animals (dogs, cats, & even a goat). Some were found alive, some found dead.

Unable to be released for adoption until the court case was settled, Hannah spent the next 12 months in the custody of a local shelter.

Hannah is now a free woman and living in foster care in Kittery, Maine with her new "brother" Odin, a Samoyed mix.

Hannah is a ball fanatic - One of her favorite pastimes is to chase balls at the beach with her foster mom. She would enjoy some tennis balls and perhaps a natural bone to chew on for the holidays. Her foster mom would love a "Chuck It" to throw balls with as her arm is getting tired.

Hannah has been in our program since July 2008 - the best present she could receive is a loving forever home.

Reggie, KY

ReggieReggie a Greyhound between four and five years old, had lived chained out his whole life, his guardian had used him for illegal, unregulated racing.

Reggie’s Vet Specialist said that his Achilles’s tendon was nearly torn, and that surgery would be required to pull it taut & allow him use of the leg again. The injury was not new and poor Reggie had been in pain for a long time. All Reggie’s surgeries and Vet visits are very expensive.

His foster parents have committed to letting him recuperate and live at their house as long as need be. What Reggie would like most for Christmas (after, of course living inside, and receiving copious amounts of love) is to know that his vet bills will be covered.

He is a wonderful, beautiful softhearted dog whom we desperately want to have a better life than he has had so far.

After all his medical stuff, Reggie loves natural treats. We have lots of them here, but if someone really wishes, since he's a greyhound and loves "stuffies", toys that squeak that he can throw around and then disembowel.

To mail Reggie a package, contact Dawn@dogsdeservebetter.org.

UPDATE "Reggie has been adopted Hooray!" 
Reggie's gifts will go with him to his new home

Clyde, OR

ClydeClyde is a big boy and a “hunk’a, hunk’a burnin’ love”. He was abandoned with his sister, Bonnie in a 4X4 kennel when volunteers from Dogs Deserve Better rescued them. Bonnie has found a forever home, but Clyde is still looking for his. He has been in foster care for several months. He has responded well to training and is very gentle. He lives with several cats and his favorite playmate is “Hanna” a Jack Russell Terrier!

Clyde would love pig ears, a blanket or some hard rubber balls. Donations would be great as he recently had surgery for entropian eyes.

Lily, IL

LilyLily is a special needs rescue. Lily is a little pup who never grew up. She’s approximately 6 months old now and because of a problem when she was born, she is very small and cannot use her back legs. If you notice, her legs sit a bit “side-saddle”.

Lily was born outside to a chained mother, but thanks to the education of Dog Deserve Better her mother was spayed and brought inside with the family to live. All the pups found inside homes except for Lily.

Thanks to a wonderful DDB Angel Lily will be receiving a set of “hot wheels” (a wheel chair) soon so that she can run around with the rest of the dogs.

When the call went out for a foster for Lily, no one answered, so with the help of other DDB Reps and rescues Dawn Ashby, DDB Rescue & Public Liaison Director said she’d take Lily into her home to foster.

Little Lily would like some yummy food, treats and toys this holiday season and a few dollars to help with vetting would be just wonderful!

Pudge, MI

PudgePudge is a fun-loving, charismatic and energetic boy! Although he spent most of his life on a chain, now he is the happiest dog you will ever meet. He smiles all the time now! Before being rescued, he didn’t know how to wag his tail but now it gets plenty of exercise!

He loves to take walks, go for car rides and run in the backyard. He went swimming for the first time this summer and couldn’t get enough of the water.
Pudge doesn't particularly like plush toys but he loves chew toys (nylabones or something that lasts awhile). He loves treats and thinks he should get them quite frequently for being handsome:) He could use a collar/leash or anything of the sort. (Large or X-Large Collar)

Thanks to the efforts of new Maine Rep, Allison Keppel, Shelby is now enjoying a soft dog bed and warm home. Sadly, Shelby has tested positive for both Heartworm and Lyme disease, and will need to be treated prior to going to an adoptive home.

This holiday season Shelby would greatly appreciate a pink collar (large) and a stuffed toy.

Desiree, NE

JJDesiree was chained with a huge logging chain, and just skin and bones, and actually close to death when a lady who drove by her day in and day out rescued her. Tied to a logging chain she began feeding her for a week. She begged the police dept. to investigate on the dogs behalf, and finally after a week, the police confiscated the dog and took her directly to a vet's office. There she was nursed back to health and although still quite thin, she is thankfully alive, as sweet as can be, and ready to begin a new life. Desiree needs a new dog bed, toys and treats are always appreciated. For information about Desiree contact gayla_hausman@hotmail.com. Contact dawn@dogsdeservebetter.org for address to send packages.

Petey, NM

PeteyPetey's story is something of a good-Samaritan as his guardian had found him outside his house, a dog broken from his chain and hit by a car at about 4 months old. After paying his $1200 vet bill to have a broken leg repaired, his savior was in love with him and made him part of his family. He took care of him in a very responsible way by having him neutered and vaccinated and loved him madly!

Then Petey’s guardian found he was dying of cancer and had to sell his home to move in with his son. He didn’t even get to say goodbye to Petey. While Petey waited for someone to come get him, he was sitting at the abandoned home all alone. His foster mom was searching for a place for him, but when no one had room for Petey, so she took him in herself.

After just hours of being at Amanda’s he broke out of his shell and has found a newfound companionship with her other two dogs, a female cattle dog and a male pit bull. He loves being an inside dog, what other kind are there?

Petey is looking for a home and perfect companion to someone wanting a best friend. Petey will be so thrilled with anything in his stocking!
