Donate The Humane Society of the United States




In order to give the trek more significant meaning, I am using it as a way to raise funds to address two burning issues:



1.   Confronting animal cruelty, exploitation, and neglect.

2.   Protecting and conserving our fragile environment.




If I did not have Chiva, there is absolutely no way I would do the trek.  I owe it to her and many other wonderful animals that continually give me a healthy, active, and joyful life and ask so little in return.








Secondly, my most passionate activity is exploring our diverse planet with friends, family, and Chiva.  I feel called upon to help care for the environment and want to give back.  I want to develop a deep connection with nature and encourage and educate others to enjoy her in a respectful manner.



 My purpose in doing the Tour de Dog is to raise as much funds and donations as possible to confront and stop animal cruelty and to protect our environment.  You too can help stop animal cruelty and protect our environment by making a donation to Chiva and I or the organization of your choice.  To donate directly to Chiva and I click the yellow "Donate" button at the top of this page. To donate directly to the organization of your choice, click on any of the URLs listed below.  All proceeds donated to Chiva and I will be distributed to the organizations below.  We thought it would be fun to see if we could reach a goal of $10,000 and by donating directly to us we can watch this happen. Help us reach our goal, get involved, STOP cruelty to animals, PROTECT our environment and donate today!!



If you would like to donate directly to an organization, here are several I recommend:


The Humane Society of the United State:

The Sierra Club:

Progressive Animal Welfare Society:




A heartfelt thank you to those that do donate.  Chiva and I greatly appreciate your contributions and will make the most of your donation.


Yours truly,
