For Tammy Grimes: Released January 2007

Artist Releases "Love Is...A Day without Chains"
in Honor of Have a Heart for Chained Dogs Week

Tammy Grimes, Artist and Founder of Dogs Deserve Better,
Debuts New Piece Seeking to Raise Standards of Care for Man's Best Friend.


Tipton, PA, January 8, 2007—Tammy Grimes, artist and founder of Dogs Deserve Better, has released her latest work entitled "Love Is...A Day without Chains" in honor of Have a Heart for Chained Dogs Week, February 7-14. "Love Is...A Day without Chains" seeks to raise the consciousness of what is acceptable in our society and how we care for Man's Best Friend.

Grimes, who will stand jury trial in spring 2007 for her efforts to save a dying chained dog, stands firm in her belief that each of us must be held responsible for taking care of our companions. When that responsibility is taken lightly or dismissed, America's pets are the ones who suffer and die.

"We are all caretakers on this earth. It is unacceptable to me that anyone, man or woman, would leave a dog to die on the ground for three days and not be held responsible for that action or inaction. 'Love Is...A Day without Chains' puts forth the belief that a day will come when every life will be valued. We've made dogs our companions; now we must take responsibility for giving them the lives they need and deserve."

Grimes holds a B.A. in Visual Art and Design from the University of Maryland, and a B.A. in Naturology from AIHT. She is currently pursuing a Master's in Naturology from AIHT, as well as working as an artist and Executive Director of Dogs Deserve Better.

50% of all profits from sales of "Love Is...A Day without Chains" will benefit Dogs Deserve Better through Febuary 28, 2007. Other art sales continue to donate 20% of proceeds. The artwork can be viewed at http://www.littlegirllooking.com/loveisadaywithoutchains.html.

Grimes can be reached at 814.941.7447 or Tammy@littlegirllooking.com for comment, and is available for art shows, commissioned works, or interviews.

Dogs Deserve Better was founded in 2002, is an international nonprofit with 150 area reps in the U.S., France, and Canada, and works to bring dogs out of the backyard into the home and family. The site can be viewed at http://www.dogsdeservebetter.org.
