In North Carolina, the Coalition to Unchain Dogs is working to improve the lives of dogs kept chained outside by going out into communities and building fences for free for pet owners who can't afford to do it themselves.

Thx Ginger. Dogs don't like chains just like I don't like wearing a TIE. LOL

This is fantastic! It is the greatest thing since the invention of toast. There is so much bliss for a "free" dog and it shows everyday. From the blissful smile on Shamus's face and the closed eyes when the volunteers took time for him, will tell you that he appreciates the attention, caring and freedom to play.

Kudos to all the volunteers and to the people who came up with the idea.

Great idea. The government needs to step in and for those that can't afford to properly care for an animal, should be allowed to have them.

Just discovered this.........what a GREAT idea! I wish such groups existed where I live. There is a rescue group that strives to get such dogs relinquished to them so they can be re-homed, but sometimes the owners refuse and legally, then nothing more can be done. All that the animal welfare laws require is shelter during inclement weather, food and water. I was trying to get a 3-yr-old Golden Retriever that had spent his entire life on a 30-foot chain, but the owners refused to give him up, claiming that they "loved" him. Nothing the rescue group could do and finally gave up trying.
