About the author:
Tamira Ci Thayne is the pioneer of the anti-chaining movement in America, and founder and former CEO of Dogs Deserve Better, a nonprofit working exclusively for chained and penned dogs.

Tamira holds a Doctorate of Naturology from the American Institute of Holistic Theology, and is an ordained interfaith minister through the same theological college.

She's trying her hand at vegan baking-taking failure to a whole new level-and bears a love for kayaking the river in a decidedly amateurish fashion. She adores her human and fur family, and also all the wild critters she secretly names. She has a sneaking suspicion that these critters don't share the same fondness for her.

Tamira is the author of Foster Doggie Insanity and Capitol in Chains, and editor of Unchain My Heart and A New Name for Worthless. She is the illustrator and editor of Puddles on the Floor.

She recently founded Who Chains You-a Publishing and Spiritual Mentoring company for animal activists and rescuers.

Capitol in Chains

54 Days of the Doghouse Blues

Authored by Tamira Ci Thayne
Edition: Second

In August 2010, one woman carried a doghouse to the steps of the Pennsylvania State Capitol building and chained herself to it, seeking passage of a law protecting dogs from life at the end of a chain.

Not knowing if she'd be arrested, ignored, or ridiculed, she set aside her fears and acted on behalf of the voiceless: dogs-the most social of beings-whose needs have been overlooked by those with the power to create chain-ge for their future.

This is her story, and the story of the 54 days she and others spent chained at the bottom of the Capitol steps in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. May you be inspired, entertained, and educated about the needs of Man's Best Friend, and how these needs continue to be negated in today's society.

Tamira Ci Thayne is the founder of Dogs
Deserve Better, a national nonprofit advocating on behalf of chained and penned dogs. in 2016 she founded Who Chains You, publishing books for animal activists and rescuers.

This Second Edition Includes Updates on Pennsylvania Laws, The Doghouse Wedding, and Eleven Years of Chain Off in America.
