WHO ARE WE
A NATIONAL TRAGEDY
DogsInDanger.com is an award winning web site owned and operated by The Buddy Fund Inc. and was founded by two dog lovers, Alex Aliksanyan & Brenda Bush, both directors of The Buddy Fund. The
website was launched in October 2007 with the goal of:
The co-founders dedicated their respective skills, The Buddy Fund provided the funding, and the shelters listed the dogs.
- Getting as many of these dogs adopted into loving homes as possible, before their time runs out; and
- Raising awareness of the number of dogs being killed in shelters.
The founders have many more ideas to implement, all aimed at eradicating the needless killing of those we call our best friends.

We are a nation of dog lovers. Then why is it that millions of dogs are being killed in shelters that are
expected to provide these animals with a second chance at life?
Shelters are the last line for millions of innocent dogs. Most people have no idea of the magnitude of this national tragedy. The sad reality
is that millions of dogs are killed each year in shelters. Why, in a country of dog lovers, are so many dogs homeless? Because their families
abandon them, for reasons like job change, divorce and new babyÖ and most shelters donít have the necessary programs to get the dogs the
exposure they need to find new homes. Shelters find homes for many dogs, but millions are killed. For far too long we have been told there is no other way.
AND A REASON FOR HOPE
DogsInDanger.com believes in the power of compassion, and that Americans would do more to help and adopt shelter dogs, if only they knew how many
dogs were dying. We have chosen a path of technology as a means of connecting these scared, abandoned shelter dogs with the loving homes
they deserve. As a nonprofit organization, we seek no other gain except for the happiness we see in the face of a dog as he
faithfully walks out through the shelter doors, in perfect step with his loving new family.
It may be uncomfortable for some to see lists of names and photos of dogs scheduled to die, but, the truth is uncomfortable. By making it
personal, we believe more people will be compelled to help these dogs. Thus dogsindanger.com refuses to present a sanitized
version of the truth. Our ultimate goal is to see a day where healthy and treatable animals are no longer killed by their most trusted friends.
