Rescue dogs finally get to run free
Dogs Deserve Better is a rescue and rehabilitation facility located in Smithfield, VA. They focus on animals who are chained, penned, or tethered outside in the elements day in and day out. More often than not, these animals come to them unhealthy, unsocialized and traumatized. They are usually terrified and withdrawn, being that they have never experienced positive interactions with humans or other animals due to their isolated environments. It is their mission to teach them how to live, not just exist. Their favorite moments are when they take their "Freedom Run" in our Freedom Field. Sometimes they are unsure of what to do with so much space, but other times they take advantage of the opportunity to be free of inhibitions for the first time in their lives and they release the pent up zoomies.
