In the year 2020, the worst global disaster in our lifetimes forced humans into confinement against their wishes. They didn’t deal with it well. They fought wearing masks, proven to save lives. Fought any perceived restrictions on their freedom.

One could argue that for the first time ever, humans at large got a small taste of what life is like for a dog on a chain. Dogs like Imagine, who couldn’t speak for himself. If only the humans knew what he was capable of…

Here’s a small taste of Episode One:

Imagine…Life on a Chain

Episode One

In the year 2020, the worst global disaster in our lifetimes forced humans into confinement against their wishes.

They didn’t deal with it well.

Doctors and scientists tried to educate the people, convince them it was for the greater good, and yet—even when faced with the very real possibility of death for stepping outside their doors—humans still did so in large numbers.

They fought wearing masks, proven to save lives.

Fought any perceived restrictions on their freedom.

One could argue that for the first time ever, humans at large got a small taste of what is a daily reality for a dog on a chain.

Dogs like Imagine, who couldn’t speak for himself…

…had no voice to say “no more.”

Shame, too. If only the humans had known what he was capable of, they may not have cast him aside so casually…

Based on a true story, Imagine could be any dog living a confined existence in America today. Each of these dogs is worthy, capable, and deserving of a home and loving family of their own.

And, yes, dare we say, freedom.

A Weird Smell

The dog awoke, feeling more uncomfortable than usual—which was saying something, given that he was chained to a dilapidated box the size of a grocery cart.

The world seemed off, the neighborhood quiet, even the woods behind him hushed . . . like everything waited . . .

He shifted uneasily, sniffed the air.

It was warm for March; the sun was just peeking over the far-off mountains, and he shivered as he crawled out of his doghouse to meet the dawn, memory of the recent cold snap making his bones ache.

He supposed he should be grateful for the promise of a warm day. As he slid into middle age, the winter months seemed longer and more unbearable with each passing year.

He shook his fur out the best he could, hoping for a little more insulation until the temperatures rose a few degrees.

He was a mutt, like so many of the forgotten. His fur was thick but on the shorter side, and his black and tan markings made him unremarkable. His floppy ears bespoke a Labrador heritage, while his coloring hinted at shepherd in the mix.

His eyes were kind, smart, knowing.

And sad.

So very, very sad….Read MORE here!

It’s National Puppy Day! Treat Yourself or your Family to a Heartwarming Dog Book

A little birdy, er, puppy, told us today was National Puppy Day! That makes it a great day to celebrate all things puppy, including supporting your local dog rescues by adopting or fostering their adorable little guys and gals.

What could be cuter than this little face?

Fostering isn’t for the faint of heart, however. Ask author Tamira Thayne, who penned the book “Foster Doggie Insanity” when she was knee-deep in puppies and other dogs looking for homes during her years in rescue. As one reader said: “Whether you’ve fostered hundreds of dogs or none, it is an enjoyable read, mixing laughter and empathy with real life situations. Thayne may even leave you questioning everything you thought you knew about our canine companions and the people who care about them. A book that is more than a tool for fostering; it is a declaration of the spirit, heart and soul of rescuers universally. The moral to this story is ‘It’s OK not to be perfect; a dog will love you anyway.’”—Dawn Ashby, former Dogs Deserve Better rep

It’s a Great Day to Celebrate with True Stories about Overcoming…Check Out These Selections from WCY Books

Today Joseph R. Biden was declared the winner of the U.S. presidential election, and is therefore slated to become our 46th president. For most of us who work so tirelessly for stronger rights for our animal friends, the environment, and humans of all creeds and colors, this development is widely hailed as a positive.

In fact, people are celebrating in the streets of our cities, and one can almost feel the lightening of a national darkness.

When fighting for the animals, activists often find themselves on the wrong side of the law, while animal abusers continue the abuse with impunity. Who Chains You Books brings you two true tales of these very struggles, and highlights the work rescuers and activists must take on, often behind the scenes, in order to carry out their mission for the animals.

Today is a great day to celebrate by choosing a story of overcoming on behalf of the animals and those who fight for them!

When dog activist Tamira Thayne and her nonprofit purchased Michael Vick’s dogfighting compound and set out to transform it to a dog rescue facility, it was widely seen as a fitting end for something heinous and unthinkable.

Yet, little did Tamira know the challenges were just beginning, as she ran headlong into the very corruption that made the county a perfect choice to house Vick’s operation.

It Went to the Dogs: How Michael Vick’s Dogfighting Compound Became a Haven for Rescue Pups is available in paperback, hardcover, audiobook, and kindle; you can even purchase autographed copies, a great holiday gift for the dog lover in your life. Find all your choices at this link: http://whochainsyou.com/wtd.html

A dog rescuer in Forks Washington positions himself as a hero for the animals, even traveling the country to gather more dogs for his nonprofit. But the ugly truth eventually surfaces, and—facing threats of lawsuits—law enforcement fails to protect the animals. It’s left up to various groups of animal rescues and activists, working in tandem, to bring the facts to the surface and find a way to win the day for these suffering dogs.

I Once Was Lost: Daisy and the Olympic Animal Sanctuary Rescue is available in paperback, kindle, and audiobook. Find links here: https://www.amazon.com/Once-Was-Lost-But-Found/dp/194604413X/

We hope you’re celebrating with us today. The animals need us, and a government who sees kindness as a positive trait is a great first step toward gaining their freedom.

New, Expanded Edition Hardcover Showcases What Became of Michael Vick’s Dogfighting Compound

New, Expanded Edition Hardcover
Showcases What Became of
Michael Vick’s Dogfighting Compound

Publisher Expands Author Tamira Thayne’s “It Went to the Dogs:
How Michael Vick’s Dogfighting Compound Became a Haven for Rescue Pups”

August 5, 2020 • Amissville VA

When chained-dog activist Tamira Thayne and her nonprofit purchased Michael Vick’s dogfighting compound and set about transforming it to a rescue facility, she had no idea what she was walking into.

sloanshed

The decision would lead not only to a home for her nonprofit’s rescue dogs, but also to the most turbulent four years of her life: she faced down allegations of racism, community harassment, poisoning, and, ultimately, false charges aimed at driving her and Dogs Deserve Better from the county.

shedsday1

The four black sheds where Michael Vick’s dogs trained and lost their lives still stand today, serving as a stark and brutal reminder of the world of dogfighting.

house1

What Thayne remembers about her first experience with the house and grounds of 1915 Moonlight Road was “a stillness, a loneliness, an oppressive feel; yet underneath there was a yearning for more—a wish to be seen, to be heard. Did the land, the souls who remained on the property seek redemption for the blood spilled in their name? Perhaps.”

Thayne believed—and still believes—that giving the property where dogs were victimized back to the dogs is a nod toward the just recompense “Man’s Best Friend” deserves.

The book highlights the steps taken by the group as they moved toward their goal, including obstacles and happy ending rescue stories. This new, expanded hardcover edition features over 230 black and white photos and documents from the author’s four years on the ground at the Good Newz Rehab Center for Chained and Penned Dogs in Smithfield, Virginia.

Said staffer Julie Sayre, “It’s not often that a job can change your entire life. I’ve never had a more meaningful, life-changing opportunity. The work I accomplished at DDB is truly something I will cherish for the rest of my life.”

The book is now available in Paperback, Kindle, Hardcover, and Audiobook!
