I have never seen anything but good works from DDB. I know for a fact that their reps work endless hours to better the life of dogs. I also know first hand that these reps spend a lot of their own money to assure that the rescues are given a better life. I suggest that instead of criticizing DDB that those of you that find vault use that time to rescue animals yourself. I really thing that would be more beneficial to society. I personally have three rescue dogs and it makes me sick to think what would have happened. Do I this many dogs at one time? NO, but I certainly would not have let them pass me by and live a horrible life! So I can rest knowing that I helped.

This organization has helped me get to rescues spayed, which I could not afford otherwise. I will always be grateful to them for taking the time to make an animals life better. Yes they are saving lives.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Spend more time finding volunteers to foster dogs.

I have watched DDB advocate for, educate the public, and rescue chained dogs all over the US for many years. They have made leaps and bounds in anti-tethering legislation. Every rep I have ever met has been passionate, respectful, and eager to help and make change.

I have made many
donations to DDB and have always been thanked and sent a receipt. I will continue to support DDB through donations, and I have even added them to my will.

I had the honor or meeting their founder, Tami Thayne, who is great woman of strength and resolve. She is out in the field, in the trenches with her volunteers.

They are TOO nice! I would have surely broken from dealing with some of the ignorance they have to deal with. The are better folks than me, they remain respectful and professional even when faced with hostile adversity.

DDB is an amazing organization! The many volunteers are devoted, hard working people, and the founder is one of the strongest women I know! I've known Tami for almost 15 years now, and I can't even count how many of her rescues I have actually met and watched blossom from terrified shells of once beautiful souls to romping, playing, loving beings of pure love and light. It makes my heart break to think of how many dogs would have remained voiceless if it hadn't have been for DDB! Thank you, DDB, for all that you've done, and all that you will continue to do! The new property is a blessing!

Dogs Deserve Better is an awesome organization. We adopted a dog from them and have been involved in volunteering ever since. Without them, our dog would still be chained to a dog house in GA 24/7 and what kind of life is that? Thanks for all you do, DDB!

Never reimbursed by DDB for the money I spent on one their dogs... seems to a common theme with the owner Tamira burning people and not paying up as promised.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Losing a bunch of money that was supposed to be reimbursed; if you question the founder or get on her bad side, she will turn her back on you, leave you with outstanding vet bills, and in one recent case even steal you dog@

Fire the founder, bring in a new CEO

Review from Guidestar

I had posted on their website asking them to explain why they took a formerly chained dog named Joel away from his adopter after she questioned the mis use of funds raised for the dog. She spent over $1000 dollars on getting the dog healthy and happy, she was never reimbursed, yet the DDB of Washington State continued to raise funds for Joels care. This mis use lead to the public finding out that DDB is not registered in most states as a 501c non profit. The Washington state site sent in a registration 4 days after they were questioned. DDB state organizations are raising monies illegally in most cases and are punishing those who question them.

Change their way of responding to people and make them accountable for their actions. Also be sure they are raising their funds legally, and not misleading the public

It is sad that they fire volunteers that did a lot of good just to bring in new volunteers The great volunteers you have been in contact with are gone and the list is always changing. It has to be poor volunteer management.

I have been a volunteer with Dogs Deserve Better for several years and I must say this is such a unique and incredible organization. As far as I know there are no other National organizations that work exclusively to educate the public on the issue of keeping a Dog chained or penned for life. This group of 140+ representatives makes such a huge sacrifice to get the message out and they work tirelessly to free these Dogs and bring them into homes where they can live as part of the family. Dog Deserve Better is a stellar not for profit organization and deserves high praises for their work in education, legislation and rescue!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The sparkle I see in a rescued Dogs eyes once they realize they are free from the imprisonment of life on a chain or in a cage.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Awesome! Hard working and dedicated!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build a center/facility to house our own rescue and rehabilitation facility. Right now we have to rely on foster homes for our rescued friends.

Ways to make it better...

There weren't so many negative people in this world who think that it's perfectly fine to force a social companion animal to live their life in isolation. Some people just don't get how cruel this is to the Dogs.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of funds. Our vet bills are astronomical due to the neglect that chained and penned Dogs suffer. We always have to vaccinate, spay and neuter and treat for parasites including heart worm which is very costly.

One thing I'd also say is that...

My dream is that one day there would be no need for an organization such as Dogs Deserve Better. That every Dog would live as part of the family ... Imagine a day such as that!
