Dogs Deserve Better
of Northern Virginia

Dogs Deserve Better is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing a better life for abused, neglected, and abandoned dogs, especially those living on chains or in confinement. We work to address the root problems of animal overpopulation, and to improve animal welfare by advocating for humane legislation, promoting spay and neuter programs, educating communities on animal welfare, and the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs in distress.
