Thank you for visiting our page and please consider supporting our mission to help the dogs that cannot help themselves.

Help us be their voice.

The summer heat is coming to an end but this does not give any relief to chained and/or penned dogs as the worst is yet to come....WINTER.  Fall can give a bit of a reprieve from inclement weather but these dogs still remain isolated and alone with little or no shelter, food or water, suffering day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year with no choice but to weather the storm.   Unchained Melodies reaches out to find these poor neglected dogs and offer help for them.  Dogs can be reported to us through our 'Report a Dog" form and we will reach out to the owners offering food, shelter, veterinary care and ultimately a new home where they can become a family pet.

Because of  YOUR donations, we can continue to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home the dogs that need us most.  Chained, penned, abused and neglected dogs that have no voice now have a chance at a happy life. We will continue to educate, legislate and rescue these dogs until one day they will all be free from the pain and chain that binds them.
