My community has a problem that affects many dogs. Is there a widespread canine medical problem? An issue with too many strays? A breeder or other business you suspect of inhumane treatment? Let Cesar and Andre know!
A canine hero in my city deserves recognition. Is there a super-dog that saved lives or has a job that regularly helps people? A valiant canine that has overcome incredible odds or has a story that will inspire dog lovers across America? Tell us about it!
My dog and I need help. Do you have a problem dog and need some advice? Submit your story!

With his help, I'm confident that we will be able to find the most inspirational and moving stories that our country has to offer. But I'm not sure what's going to be the bigger challenge - helping the biggest problem dogs in America, or living in such close quarters with my 21-year-old son!"
