Dogs Deserve Better

That's the name of a Pennsylvania-based group with a single mission: to get dogs freed from long-term chaining. Several months ago, founder Tammy Grimes was arrested when she unchained a half-dead dog and took him from private property. He's safe now and getting healthier, as her case winds its way through the court system. She just rejected a prosecution deal: return the dog to its owners and accept "advanced rehabilitation,'' which is like a pretrial diversion program, in exchanged for having the charges dropped.

No way, said Grimes, who's headed for a jury trial. Click here to go to the DDB website for the latest on the case.
