We provide free lectures and presentations about various humane education topics in schools, libraries, and other public venues, as well as, utilizing social media channels and the organization’s website to provide facts, statistics, and solutions to helping animals in harmful or less than ideal situations. Our programs include sending out ambassadors to raise social consciousness about these animal welfare issues on a local and national level and to hold fundraising events in order to raise awareness about said issues or to provide immediate relief to animals in need. At times, per the discretion of the board of directors, we may provide volunteer opportunities or internships, which shall provide opportunities for involvement in said outreach events, activities and programs, in order to have a greater impact for change.

A group of truly compassionate and honor drive people. Rain, sleet, snow or shine they fight for what they believe in (which is one of the many things we agree on).

Bailing Out Benji is remarkable!!!
Their steadfast commitment and hard work amazes me!
The money raised goes towards alot of marketing, literature, banners on billboards and busses. If anyone questions this, I encourage you to look up the costs yourselves-it's not cheap!!!
They're non profit and do the best the can with what they're able to raise.

Many people have been educated across the globe and as a result have adopted at their local shelter/s and or breed specific rescues!

It takes a village! We must ALL do our part to end animal cruelty in and out of Puppy Mills. If you want change, be the change! Get out and help protest, educated, contact your legislatures and fight the good fight like BOB has .

Keep up the fantastic job Bailing Out Benji!

Sadly, I haven't seen my donations fund anything but posters. Had hoped that some dogs lives would be saved through changed legislation or something of substance. Wouldn't recommend.

Bailing Out Benji has helped bring to light a huge problem in the Midwest and across the nation. Puppy mills are legal places of torture for thousands of dogs, and this organization works tirelessly to educate the public about the hazards of supporting such cruelty. Many are learning each day about what it means to ignorantly, innocently make an uninformed purchase of a puppy from a pet store. Thank you B.O.B. for opening so many eyes, rescuing so many lives, and keeping up the important fight against puppy mills! I stand with this organization!

Mindi and company have a consistent, noble mission I'm glad to support. It's a labor of love and Mindi is affective, educational, and promotes change. We collaborate and support each other often, and working with BoB has been beneficial to both parties who remain very friendly and supportive to each other.

I have always been an animal lover. I volunteered at a vet as a teenager, had many pets as a child and got my first dog in my early twenties. I wasn't allowed one as a child because I was allergic, but I didn't care and toughed it out anyways to have a beloved dog. I got a dachshund because I had wanted one for years. I found a breeder and picked her up at 8 weeks old. As much as I loved animals, I had no clue about rescue or the horrors that so many dogs endure due to puppy mills. I discovered rescue a few years later and adopted my second dog from a dachshund rescue and was feeling good about saving a life. Still, I had no idea what a puppy mill was. I was just browsing Facebook one day about 4 or 5 years ago, and one of the dachshund pages I follow showed a link to an article about puppy mills written by Bailing out Benji. I was horrified, cried tears and felt enraged that this horrific suffering was going on and so many people either don't know about it or are the people who are perpetuating it. From that moment on, I have been active about educating the people I know about puppy mills, as well as doing my part to be sure not to support those who support mills in any way. I'm educating my daughters now, and I can guarantee my girls would never "buy" a pet. Bailing out Benji is a great wealth of information teaching so many about the perils of puppy mills and pet store puppies, but even more Bailing out Benji is also a group of dedicated activists making a difference.
