About Ryder Safe Foundation
You've come to the right place if you're interested in learning about collar safety, and how you can keep your dogs safe by preventing dog collar strangulation.
October 23, 2018, our beloved 4-year old chocolate labrador, Ryder Jackson, was strangled to death from his collar while playing with his best friend Skyrah. We were totally in shock the day this happened, we never knew this was something "could" happen. We never knew how dangerous dog collars were, until that fateful day. Dog collars create a lot of dangers both in and outside of the home.
The Ryder Safe Foundation is in the process of registering as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are dedicated to dog collar safety awareness and education. Our mission is to educate and create awareness for others about the dangers associated with dog collars when dogs live and play while wearing collars.
Collar accidents happen in normal and safe settings, and they happen regardless of collar choice. Thousands of dogs are injured or die every year. Many owners are unaware of this danger.
The Ryder Safe Foundation hopes to bring awareness to collar safety. Our goal is to educate unknowing animal lovers. We will ask you to consider removing the collar during play, and when left unattended.
We will also encourage you to share our story, in an effort to help save others from the heartbreak we have gone through losing our beloved Ryder Jackson. The more awareness that is out there, the less likelihood of these tragic accidents.
We hope by sharing our story you will never lose your best friend the senseless way we lost our sweet Ryder Jackson. Knowledge is powerful. Together we can save lives.
We frequently hear, "How did I not know?" We want to change that with education, and awareness.
