The Humane Society of the United States and the U.S. Department of Agriculture have declared that tethering dogs is inhumane, significantly restricts their movement, and can potentially cause injury. Being naturally social animals, dogs experience psychological damage when confined to one spot for extended periods of time, causing anxiety, neurosis, and often aggression. Physically, chains and poorly fitting collars can lead to sores from the dogs' constant attempts to yank themselves free.
If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, then the Coalition to Unchain Dogs can neuter, vaccinate, and build a fence for one recently chained dog named Bruno. Each additional $10 raised will go toward building a fence for another recently chained dog. Partnering with Lifeline Animal Project, the Coalition to Unchained Dogs will build Bruno a fence and a doghouse with a wheat-straw bed so that he has the freedom to roam and a warm place to sleep. After his fence is complete, Bruno will be able to run in his yard and develop healthy social and mental habits. While providing Bruno with newfound freedom, the organization's members hope to inform the community about the harmful effects of chaining.

In August 2006, a small group met at a coffee shop in Durham, North Carolina, to discuss a goal: to pass anti-tethering legislation in North Carolina's Triangle area. To help the legislation pass, as well as aid community members in adjusting more easily to not chaining their dogs, the Coalition to Unchain Dogsled by Amanda Arrington, now the executive directororganized volunteers to regularly build fences at no cost to the dog owners.
Today that small group has grown to more than 100 volunteers, with four chapters in North Carolina and one in Atlanta, Georgia. The coalition couples its fence-building services with vaccinations and spaying or neutering services for each local dog. In the past five years, Unchain Dogs has spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and built fences for more than 1,200 area dogs.
