Dogs Deserve Better of Northern Virginia is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping dogs in distress, especially those living on chains, in confinement, or in abusive situations. We are an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue serving the Washington DC, metro area.

Our mission is to provide a better life for abused, neglected, and abandoned dogs, work to address the root problems of animal overpopulation, and improve animal welfare. We accomplish this through legislative advocacy, promoting spay and neuter, educating communities on animal welfare, and the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs in distress.
