About the Book:
In August 2010, one woman carried a doghouse to the steps of the Pennsylvania State Capitol building and chained herself to it, seeking passage of a law protecting dogs from life at the end of a chain.
Not knowing if she’d be arrested, ignored, or ridiculed, she set aside her fears and acted on behalf of the voiceless: dogs—the most social of beings—whose needs have been overlooked by those with the power to create chain-ge for their future.
This is her story, and the story of the 54 days she and others spent chained at the bottom of the Capitol steps in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. May you be inspired, entertained, and educated about the needs of Man’s Best Friend, and how these needs continue to be negated in today’s society.
This Second Edition Includes:
Updates on PA Laws
The Doghouse Wedding
Eleven Years of Chain Off in America
“While reading this book I thought many times that our commissioners, city councilman and state representatives all need a copy of this book. I’ve even thought about buying one for each of my city council and commissioners because they need to understand what really goes on with chained dogs.
“The people that chain their dogs need to step into their dog’s paws. If each of our representatives would do the same—for even an hour—just maybe they would understand why it’s not ‘just a dog.’ Great book!”—Evie Kettler, chained dog activist, Georgia
