Serving Ohio's Clark, Champaign and Union counties.

Because every dog deserves the chance to be a great dog.
Our Mission
  The Backyard Dog Project is a non-profit, all-volunteer group that helps owners improve the 
quality of life for their outdoor dogs.  

We focus on neighborhoods where people are often unable to provide basic supplies and veterinary care for their dogs.  We strive to help families who are willing to work alongside us to become responsible pet owners.  In addition to donated supplies, education in basic pet care and access to affordable vet care we offer guidance in finding alternatives to continuous chaining/penning as a method of pet containment.
