Just because you see a dog outside doesn't mean their neglected and no one cares about them. My dog is ALWAYS brought inside when the weather is bad yet your organization is placing stuff on my porch. Stop by daily and you will see my dog is left with plenty to eat and drink. He's up to date on immunizations and he is not underweight or any of the bus that would signify a neglected dog. Please stay off people's property making assumptions.
This is one of the only animal group in Kansas City whose sole purpose is fielding calls about animals in need, primarily dogs tied outside being neglected. They drive the streets of the city, looking for animals without adequate shelter, food, water and medical care. We absolutely need more groups like Chain of Hope as long as tying your animal outside for unlimited periods of time remains legal and as long as animal control remains understaffed and unconcerned about the torture and suffering of animals in our community. I've personally witnessed the work that they've done and can vouch for them. Go to their website and read Kate's blog to see the heartwrenching stories of these animals.
I will support this group as long as I can and as long as they are in existence.
