Forgotten Souls: A Better Life for Abused, Neglected, and Abandoned Canines

May 16

Join us as Hannah Hein discusses the work of Dogs Deserve Better, Blue Ridge, an all-volunteer non-profit based in Charlottesville. Their goal is to bring attention and hope to chronic and systematic abuse and neglect of dogs in our region. Hannah’s presentation will explore the community impact of animals tethered or chained outside for the duration of their lives. She’ll also discuss possible resolutions, services and strategies provided by DDB BR, and how all of those, while focused on canines, are helping improve societal impacts of the cycle of poverty and bring hope to families in crisis. You can rest assured there will plenty of heartwarming stories and eye-opening moments. Make your plans today. RSVP to 434-823-9100 or Seating is limited.
