From David: As I bike and explore many types of beautiful terrain with Chiva, I am constantly reminded of how fortunate we are to be in the position to be doing the Tour de Dog.   It is truly breathtaking to watch Chiva as she sprints through redwood forest, climbs Pacific Northwest volcanoes, and plays on Oregon sand dunes.  She brings so much joy to my life and asks so little in return.  She is always by my side giving 100%, and I simply could not ask for a better friend.

As I tour animal shelters throughout the country, I see firsthand that many are inadequately equipped to sponsor programs that find good homes for cats and dogs.  They also need ongoing financial help and support to implement spay and neuter programs to avoid increasing the already alarming number of homeless dogs and cats.  I adopted Chiva from the Delaware SPCA and want to help them and other shelters in return.  Please assist me in helping animal shelters around the country by donating today. 

100% of your donation will go towards helping these wonderful and needed shelters to help improve the lives of many cats, dogs and animals alike.  As I continue to travel, I will provide updates with where and how donations are being spent.

A heartfelt thank you from the Tour de Dog to those who donate and who get involved.


David and Chiva
