A word from Jeff Borchardt and Daxton’s Friends
I want to express my heartfelt appreciation to the victims, the survivors and their families as well as advocates of our struggle against the growing epidemic of pit bull and fighting breed dog attacks. Today we launch our billboard initiative thanks to you! To all the contributors who have supported our projects through donations I want to tell you how much you have helped spread the word about the dangers of bringing these dogs into your homes, communities and neighborhoods. Without your support, the victims and fatalities would be forgotten and ignored. We must never let that happen. Their voices and stories carry the message that will save lives in the future.
Daxton’s Friends works in conjunction with AVOCA (Awareness for Victims of Canine Attack) to form a network to effectively promote public safety and provide victims resources. New attack victims often feel alone and unsupported, lacking information and options to deal with the financial and emotional trauma that a dog attack creates. They need timely and instructive assistance. We are also affiliated with Dogsbite.org and other nonprofits to provide factual information about dog attacks to assist lawmakers and legislators as well as the media.
As a final note, your donations are deeply appreciated and are ONLY used for the purpose of educating the public about safety with canines and the dangers of pit bulls and fighting breed dogs. No monies are used for personal gain or expenses unrelated to the educational endeavors put forth as the mission of Daxton’s Friends non-profit organization. That being said, these attacks are still occurring and our organization still needs funds to continue this good work. Remember, without YOU, this would not be possible. THANK YOU.
