BioTamira Thayne is the author of The Wrath of Dog, The King's Tether, Foster Doggie Insanity, Capitol in Chains, and co-editor of Unchain My Heart and Rescue Smiles.

Tamira is the pioneer of the anti-chaining movement in America, and founder and former CEO of Dogs Deserve Better, a nonprofit working exclusively for chained and penned dogs.
Tamira adores her human and fur family, and also all the wild critters she secretly names. She has a sneaking suspicion that the critters don't share the same fondness for her.
In 2016 founded Who Chains You Books, to amplify the voices of the animals through the empowerment of animal lovers, activists, and rescuers to write and publish books elevating the status of animals in today’s society.
