DogsBite.org is proud to announce our 1,500 blog post. Back in July, we gathered the best of our first 1,000 blog posts to highlight our commitment to reducing serious dog attacks. We now present to you the best of our last 500 posts since this time. These last 500 posts show our continued dedication to our cause: ensuring that victims' voices are heard and encouraging policymakers to enact laws that better protect people and pets from dangerous dogs.
Victims are not on course to remain quiet, we are on course to grow more vocal.
