We hope you're staying safe and doing lots of reading! Check the latest news and events here.

Love Animals? Welcome! Our books applaud animals and those who care for them, and we celebrate the connection between humans and our non-human friends.

At Who Chains You we publish books for those who believe people—and animals—deserve to be free.

Welcome to Who Chains You Books.

We 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.

We're Award-Winners! We've had SIX of our books win awards so far! Our Rescue Smiles book won a Maxwell Award for Best Book: Human/Animal Bond.

Founded by Tamira Ci Thayne—author, animal activist, book designer, 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 80 titles in our fifth 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. In addition, we're printing a whole series of fun and/or educational books featuring YOUR STORIES, too! You want to be heard, and Who Chains You will shout your experiences from the rooftops. Funny Rescue Story? Share it with us. Visit our submissions page to see all the topics we are currently working on, or suggest a new one.

Do you represent a nonprofit? If you'd like to order our books in bulk to sell to benefit your organization, please visit our Nonprofit Order Page or email us at info@whochainsyou.com for special wholesale pricing.

Grab your Rescue Angel tattoo license, or your Who Chains You masks, attire, and other gift ideas for the animal lover in your life.
