Announcing Chain Off 2007 · Unchain the 50!
Freedom for America’s Chained Dogs
4th of July · Events to be held June 30th through July 7th


This Years 4th of July marks our 5th Annual Chain Off Event, and this Year we’re going Even Bigger than EVER, with a Goal of at least ONE PERSON per state living chained to a Doghouse for 8-24 hours in our Fabulous Unchain the 50 Campaign!

The Dogs Deserve Better Chain Off, held every July 4th for the past 5 years, has evolved from one woman chaining herself to a doghouse for 33 hours in Pennsylvania in 2004, to 11 contestants chaining themselves for as long as 13 days in 2006 to win a new car.

Along the way others have joined in the crusade, with last year separate events being held in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Maine.

This year we want to make it even easier to participate, and we need at least 50 people to join us! That’s right, at least ONE from every state. And here’s how we’ve made it easy for you…

Last year’s participant, Erin Blais of Maine, BLAZED a trail for you…She lived chained to a doghouse for 24 hours IN HER VERY OWN YARD! That’s right, no event to plan, location to get permission for, funds to raise…nothing. And the media STILL CAME.

Many of you have been telling us you want to do this for years, but when it came to planning the event, it proved to be too much for you. (We understand, it can be VERY daunting.) So this year, DON’T PLAN. Just get yourself a doghouse, let us know where and when you will be joining us, get a few friends to sponsor you on this hourly ‘sponsor sheet’ (like a walk-a-thon), and be done with it.

We will alert your local media and include your details on our website. Each person who chains her/himself for 8 hours or more will receive a FREE CHAIN OFF 2007 T-shirt, as well as brochures to hand out to any interested passers-by.

Just a few simple rules to live by:

1. If you say you’ll do it, don’t back out.

2. Get friends and family to sponsor you on this sponsor sheet so you can raise money for our work while you’re whiling away the hours.

3. Make sure to take photos and send us a write up of your success for the website.

4. Chain yourself from 8-24 hours anytime from June 30th through July 8th.

AND THAT’S IT! Could it get any simpler?

Join us today.

E-mail Dawn [at] dogsdeservebetter.org with all your details.

Our MAIN EVENT will be held, we are 90% sure, in Atlanta, Georgia this year. Details to follow as soon as location is confirmed. We’d like to have volunteers from all over come to be chained with us. Tammy Grimes will be chained there for 24 hours, and anyone else who can come to be chained with her is very welcome. We will also have speakers, booths, and other events ongoing for the two days. More to follow as the event shapes up.
