"There is no worse punishment for a dog than a life sentence at the end of a chain. Forcing man's best friend to exist in the same barren patch 24/7 deprives these highly social pack animals of proper socialization and the opportunity to move around and explore."
Unchain Forsyth builds fences for dogs that have lived their lives at the end of a chain. An awesome team of volunteers gathers once a month to build fences and celebrate in the joy these dogs experience once they become “chain free.”
Low-income candidates for fence builds must meet certain requirements including having a current rabies vaccination for their dog, having the dog spayed or neutered and agreeing to never chain the dog again.
Education is also a key component to these fence builds. Fur-Ever Friends encourages the families to include their dogs in their everyday lives and to play, walk, and engage their pets.
