Auckland Charity: Chained Dog

Auckland now has a charity associated with 'The Big Dog Walk With Lots of Dogs. Auckland'!! A charity that relies solely on volunteers, 'Chained Dog' is fighting to end the life-chaining of dogs in NZ. 'Chained Dog' aims to inform the general public about the cruelty of long-term chaining or incarceration of dogs and to alleviate the animals' suffering where possible through education and support of their existing owners.

They will be present on the day so please give generously! In the meantime, how good does Ben Barrington look with his pup? You could look like this too with just one click here:

Chained Dog Awareness in NZ (CDANZ) is a registered charity that is fighting to end the life-chaining of dogs in New Zealand. We are currently the only charity that specializes in working with Chained Dogs predominantly, and have gained many years of experience and expertise in this area. All of the people working with CDANZ are volunteers who give their time freely to help those who can’t speak for themselves.

Since 2001, Chained Dog Awareness has continued to help abused and neglected dogs in New Zealand and worked to free them from a life on a chain. We have successfully rescued and rehomed hundreds of dogs and exposed their plight to the public.

We provide education & support to those owners willing to accept help, so that their dogs can continue to live with them & have happier lives. We hope that by showing people that, with proper care and attention, dogs can be wonderful family members who can bring so much pleasure to their lives. We also rescue dogs when they cannot stay with their owners, either because the neglect is too much, or because the owner acknowledges that they are unable to properly care for their dog. When dogs are relinquished to us, we rehabilitate & rehome them to homes where they will be loved & treated like a member of the family.
