Who is Benji ?

Bailing Out Benji, which was founded in 2011, is known for being a small nonprofit organization that makes huge waves on a small budget.  Whether we are peacefully protesting, educating or rescuing and transporting dogs-  we are making an impression wherever we go.

Bailing Out Benji was founded by Mindi Callison, when she was 21 years old. Mindi learned about the puppy mill industry after purchasing a puppy from a pet store and then learning about where her puppy was really born. It wasn’t until 2016 that Bailing Out Benji expanded out of Iowa to other states in the country. 

The most common question we are asked is “Who is Benji?”  Benji is your dog, Benji is my dog, but more importantly Benji is all of the dogs who will leave this earth without ever knowing the kindness, dignity or love that all animals deserve. Chained dogs, dogs trapped in puppy mills, dogs trapped in testing facilities, stray dogs, lost dogs…. We are their voice in this world and we will stand as constant reminders to those who insist on hurting these innocent creatures that the world is watching.
