My Cause

After a meaningful post by my brother, I wanted to remind the Tour de Dog Pack of my cause.

As I dazedly biked out of the deserts of Nevada and Utah, I was questioning my Tour de Dog efforts. When I pulled into Salt Lake City all it took was a quick visit to the Utah Humane Society to remind me that my goal of using the Tour de Dog to raise money to help animals in dire need is a worthy cause. Please continue to help me by sharing my blog and message with anyone and everyone.

I want to emphasize that any donations will go 100% to helping animal projects that meet my approval. When all is said and done, I really hope that the biking, hiking, and blogging that Chiva and I have completed will have made a positive difference. Click here to learn more about donating.

I fear that people see my scenic pictures and think this is simply a fun adventure. It is much more than that. Here are two pictures I found on the Internet that illustrate horrendous problems some animals face. They need your help.
