This survey isn't applicable to this groupon. It wasn't a business that you go to to use your groupon. It was essentially a donation. I was happy it was on groupon though, it seemed like an awesome company who is doing really great things for our furry friends :)

What You'll Get


The Issue: Chained Dogs Can Suffer Trauma

Dogs who live their lives at the end of a chain are more vulnerable to attacks from other animals and may suffer physically from both the chain and the extreme temperatures of the outdoors, according to a report by the Humane Society of the United States. Common afflictions of dogs that are chained outside include eye, ear, and skin conditions, neck and back injuries incurred from tugging on the chain, and bleeding elbows from hard surfaces. The isolation of being chained can also cause timid behavior.

The Campaign: Build Fences to Unchain Dogs

If this Grassroots campaign raises $495, then Fences For Fido can build a medium-size fence for Shadow, a 3-year-old black labrador retriever on its waiting list, who currently lives on a chain. Volunteers will pound T-posts into the ground, stretch welded wire around them, and assemble a gate, allowing Shadow to roam free safely. Each additional $11 donation will go toward funding a fence to unchain another dog on the waiting list.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.
