Who Chains You Publishing brings you books that educate, entertain, and share gripping plights of the animals we serve and those who rescue and stand in their stead.
At our deepest levels, we explore what chains we humans must break within ourselves in order to free the animals.
In addition—for animal activists and rescuers fighting to obtain basic rights for the voiceless—government officials, animal "owners", and others with power and control often stand in the way of progress for the defenseless. We owe it to ourselves and to the animals we serve to explore and overcome the chains which bind us, to blow past our inhibitions, and emerge victorious in the only way that matters: by winning freedom for the oppressed.
Welcome to Who Chains You Books.
Animal activists and rescuers find ourselves at the forefront of one of THE social issue of modern times. But, unfortunately, we have a LONG way to go for true freedom for those who remain voiceless in our society.
Who Chains You Books supports humane education and animal nonprofits through our wholesale programs, because we recognize that those in the field need materials that reflect your mission. We publish books for and about animal lovers, activists and rescuers—in all genres from children's to fiction to autobiographies. Self help? Yes, we've got it and we'll have more. Fun, fiction books with activists as the heroes and heroines? We want it! We pledge to publish how-to's, inspirational books, and children's books to inspire a future generation of animal lovers.
Founded by Tamira Ci Thayne—animal activist, book designer, author, and founder and former CEO of Dogs Deserve Better—we're excited about where we're heading and we hope you'll join us for the ride.
We want YOUR stories—whether we feature you in one of our collection series or we print your full length novel. The sky's the limit to where we can go, together!
We've been 'live' as a niche, indie publishing company as of July 1, 2016, when we presented our first four books: a book for doggie foster parents, an inspirational book for animal activists, and two children's books. We've grown to over 50 titles in our third year. Our hope is that this is just the beginning.
If you're interested in submitting a book for publishing consideration, visit our submissions page.

What's Crescent Renewal Books? Crescent Renewal is a newly-formed imprint of Who Chains You Publishing which features educational and/or uplifting books that—while they aren't animal-themed—represent other aspects of humane education, such as environment, social justice, or building strong childhood support systems. Our first book under this imprint is from author Laura W. Eckroat, The Lost Tooth.
Who Chains You Publishing pledges to support charity efforts for animals with a year-end donation. For 2019, we will donate a portion of our proceeds to those charities who participate in our Nonprofit Wholesale Program with the purchase of 30 books or more throughout the year. For those in the animal nonprofit community this is an added bonus, as our books make great fundraising and educational tools for those speaking out for the animals. Visit our nonprofit fundraising page to learn more.
