Strategies on Breaking the Chains – Saving one Dog at a Time

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Optional Workshop - Additional Fee Required

See a sad chained dog in your neighborhood and wonder what you can do about it? You've come to the perfect panel, get ideas and positive solutions for chained dogs and under-served communities that include:

• Fencing programs
• Awareness Campaigns
• Grassroots legislative efforts

A growing trend among advocates has touched the heart of communities all over the country and become a catalyst for positive change. By providing free direct services such as fenced enclosures, dog houses, and spay/neuter services to under-served communities, advocates are transforming lives for chained dogs, their families, and helping to bridge the gap within their community.
