Unchained Melodies Foster Dogs
Will You Sponsor Us for the Holidays This Year?

Give a formerly chained or penned foster dog a taste of the joy they've never known this Holiday Season! As one of Unchained Melodies most beloved campaigns, our annual Sponsor a Rescue Dog Holiday Program reaches out and touches the giving spirit in all of us.

Give to Dogs Who Come From Nothing

All the dogs in our program come from life on a chain or in a pen. These dogs have nothing before coming to Unchained Melodies; no toys, no love, no companionship, and sometimes no food or water. But thanks to our loving foster families, they are finding new life and new wonderful—inside—homes of their own. Your gifts bring joy to their hearts and smiles to their puppy faces while they wait for that special home.

If you'd like to send a general, tax-deductible gift to the organization, Unchained Melodies would appreciate donations of the following: For letter-size envelopes, our mailing address is Unchained Melodies at P.O. Box 7018, Columbia MO 65205. For packages, please use our street address of 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203. Thank you for bringing so much joy to our foster dogs this holiday season!

We appreciate gift cards for most anywhere, but these in particular:

BOWSER

Bowser—with his wonky ears—has become a volunteer favorite.  Bowser was chained in his owners backyard and would continually break free and cause a ruckus with other dogs in the neighborhood.  Since being with Unchained Melodies, he has settled down and now walks nicely through the neighborhood, does not jump on people, and would really make a wonderful family pet.

Bowser is not picky when it comes to treats. He has also learned to fetch, so any fetch toy would make this boy happy.  Bowser cannot have a dog bed because he eats them but enjoys laying on a cot that is getting pretty worn, so he would love to have a new cot for napping.

If you'd like to adopt Bowser, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

BROWNIE

Brownie is a Senior boy who came to us in horrific condition.  Brownie was very thin and was missing a lot of his fur, had teeth worn down to the gums from chewing and eating rocks due to lack of food.  Brownie has overcome the odds and has gained weight, grown hair and is a very loving, friendly boy.

Brownie spends his days lounging around and would love to have a therapeutic dog bed to rest his weary bones.  Brownie also likes dental chews, even though he doesn't have many teeth, he still loves chomping away at them. Brownie loves to eat so any type of soft treat would make him a happy boy.

If you'd like to adopt Brownie, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

CHASE

Chase is such an adorable little guy who has such a rough time with his health. When we rescued Chase, his eye was ruptured and had to be removed. Poor Chase had a terrible time with the first surgery, and had problems healing so he had to have yet another surgery on his eye.  It is now healed properly and looks great but Chase is also heartworm positive so he has to undergo painful injections to get rid of those nasty heartworms that could potentially kill him.

Chase loves toys and treats of any kind and could use a new dog bed to call his own. 

If you'd like to adopt Chase, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

CHERRY

Cherry has been with us for a while and we simply do not understand it.  She has everything—she's friendly, potty trained, crate trained, and such a snuggle bug.  We really hope Santa grants her wish of a home of her own this Christmas!

Meanwhile, in foster care, Cherry loves the cheese flavored Nylabones. Cherry loves soft toys, but please, no stuffing.  She also loves soft treats and would love a large, comfy bed that is Beagle sized. 

If you'd like to adopt Cherry, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

CHRISTY

Christy broke our hearts when we found her completely covered with ticks—ticks on top of ticks! Luckily, by working through a neighbor, her owner decided she wanted an inside home for this girl, at age 13. Christy has a large tumor on her shoulder and also a large tumor on her liver. Christy will be undergoing surgery right after the Holidays so we need some puppy prayers please! 

Christy loves stuffed toys and bones; her bad hips would also benefit from a therapeutic bed.  Christy is overweight so any healthy or low calorie treats would help with her waistline.

If you'd like to adopt Christy, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

JESSIE

Jessie is another ole timer who was chained up as a small puppy when she was found on a country road.  Unfortunately we did not rescue her until she was almost 5 years old.  Her fear issues and aggression toward anything with four legs keeps her from getting a home of her own.  Single dog homes are very hard to find so for now we do the best we can for her and she goes for walks multiple times a day, loves to go through the McDonald's drive through and would really enjoy a McDonald Gift Card. 

She also likes bones of any kind, Nylabones and Benebones and of course any type of treat, especially something that is peanut butter flavored, Jessie LOVES peanut butter!

If you'd like to adopt Jessie, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

JFAR THE HOMELESS HOUND HERO

Jfar is no stranger to the Sponsorship program and is yet again looking for that special someone who will give him a chance at a home of his own.  Jfar is now getting up in years and spends most of his days in a kennel as he has no foster home but volunteers visit him throughout the day and take him for walks, rides and outings.

His favorite place is Sonic so a Sonic gift card would make Jfar AND the volunteers extremely happy. Jfar is also a heavy chewer so heavy duty Nylabones, Deer Antlers, Horns would help him pass his lonely hours and keep him content.  

If you'd like to adopt Jfar, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

LADY

Lady is once again in our Sponsorship program. Lady is still fearful and does not adjust to new things easily. The slightest noise will make her jump out of her skin. She hates to be outside in bad weather and it breaks our hearts to think of her having to spend year after year chained to a dog house, shivering and quivering from the noise of wind and rain.

Lady loves treats of any kind and would like a comfy bed to call her own, she seems to prefer the flat beds and will always find a corner spot where she feels safe. Lady also likes jerky strips or any type of chew that is digestible and easy to eat.

If you'd like to adopt Lady, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

LIL BEAR

Lil Bear was actually hairless when we rescued her! She came from the same property that Brownie came from and—even though younger— was in worse condition than he was. Look at her thick gorgeous coat now!

Lil Bear has very bad teeth so soft treats is what she enjoys. She would also look dapper in any bandana or collar. Lil Bear likes soft beds and would love a new one to call her own. We are hoping to get Lil Bear groomed and a dental with her sponsorship fees. This would maybe help her get adopted and a home for the holidays.

If you'd like to adopt Lil Bear, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

LLOYD

Lloyd was such a sad case who was chained to a plastic igloo from a young pup. Luckily for Lloyd, his owners needed to give him away because they could not have a dog where they were moving to.  We were happy to bring him to safety when contacted by a fellow rescuer.  Lloyd has blossomed into a well behaved, gorgeous boy with such expressive eyes. 

Lloyd is ready for a home to call his own, one that will give him the exercise he needs and hopefully a canine playmate too.

Lloyd simply cannot live without toys with squeakers! He also enjoys Benebones and treats to keep him entertained while he hunts and pecks for them (a training exercise for mental stimulation) around the house. 

If you'd like to adopt Lloyd, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

LUCY

Lucy has come a long way since her rescue last May. She was skin and bones, and so weak that she had to be physically carried off the property where she was chained. We agreed to take her in sight unseen because we knew how badly she needed us. Lucy is now a healthy 75 lbs and is the sweetest dog on the planet. She’s about 6 years old, crate trained, gets along with dogs and is cat tested and approved! Her favorite things are treats, snoozin’, walks and car rides. Repeat.

She could really benefit from a size large “freedom harness” for walks and a seat belt for car rides. Despite having many broken and worn down teeth, she LOVES Benebones and Bully Horns to chew on. Lucy would also love a thick bed for her crate.

If you'd like to adopt Lucy, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

Reba loves treats, LOVES them and will do anything for them.  She also is a Diva and likes to wear sweaters during the winter and sun dresses in the summer. She also looks adorable in hoodies and head bands. Reba also loves balls, LOVES balls but is only allowed indestructible balls (unlike the photo shown here).

SCOTTIE

Wade and Scottie are the last of their litter to find their forever home.  These pups were living in a filthy, muddy pen after being abandoned by their Momma at just three weeks old when she refused to nurse them. They adjusted well and are now healthy pups but they are growing fast and would love new collars to show off their pretty black/brown coats. 

Wade and Scottie are puppies so chew, chew, chew, play, play, play is all they want to do.  Any toy, ball or treat would help keep these pups content.

If you'd like to adopt Scottie, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

SPIRIT

Spirit is our poster child for chaining, and has been with us for quite some time. It took this long for him to rehabilitate from his horrific existence chained to an igloo that was literally sunk in the mud to the point where he could not even get in it. Spirit now enjoys belly rubs and walks well on a leash.

He could use a new Easy Walk Harness as his is getting a bit frayed. He loves treats of any kind, and also enjoys tough chew toys like Nylabones; Benebones are one of his favorites.

STURGILL

Sturgill is a tiny little man with a BIG personality.  Sturgill was chained out as a pup because he was not potty trained. Unchained Melodies found him posted on Swap Shop and quickly contacted the owner and brought him to safety and into a home. Sturgill is now almost 2 years old and is ready for a new home.  He loves to romp and play with his foster siblings, playing with toys and balls.

Sturgill also enjoys eating out of food puzzles, he loves to turn meal time into a game!  Sturgill still has some potty issues so he would like to ask Santa for some pee pads. His foster Mom likes the new kind with the sticky stuff on the back so they don't slide around.  If you don't mind pee pads around the house, this little guy is fantastic and would make any family happy!

If you'd like to adopt Sturgill, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

SUGAR

Sugar is another ole timer, a senior dog.  Sugar came to us with a slit throat which was cut while she was chained outside where she barked all of the time. Sugar deserved a chance at a happy, comfy life so Unchained Melodies could not turn their backs on this girl.  Sugar is getting very grey around her muzzle but she is not slowing down! 

Sugar still loves to play and chew and would love some heavy duty chew toys, like a new durable Kong.  She would also love a new chew proof bed.  Sugar can be pretty destructive so we try to give her toys and beds with a lifetime warranty. 

If you'd like to adopt Sugar, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

TIMBERLY

Timberly was dumped at a diner in Mid-Missouri with 14 young pups!  Timberly has had a long, tough road trying to care for all of these pups but she did a great job and her pups are all adopted and are in loving homes. Unfortunately, Timberly tested positive for heartworms and needs to have painful injections to get rid of those nasty worms that could kill her if left untreated. Timberly has now gained enough weight to successfully get her treatment and will hopefully be heartworm-free.

Timberly would love a comfy bed while she is recuperating from her heart worm treatment.  She also loves the cheese flavored Nylabones and treats of any kind.

If you'd like to adopt Timberly, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

VAL

Valentino (Val) was chained for 8 long years.  He had a dilapidated dog house that had a huge opening and the wind and snow would blow right in.  Unchained Melodies provided food for Val year after year until finally his owner decided he was getting to old and allowed us to remove him from his chain. Val is very photogenic and loves to have his photo taken.  Val also enjoys his walks and carries something in his mouth during his entire walk.

A hard rubber ball is one of his favorite things to carry. Val also enjoys heavy chews like Nylabones and Benebones and any type of chew and treat but his favorite thing in the whole world is a belly rub!  

If you'd like to adopt Val, e-mail Unchained Melodies at unchainedmelodiesinc@gmail.com. To mail a package, send it to Unchained Melodies, 8050 S Highpoint Lane, Columbia, MO 65203.

VIOLET

Violet is a tiny little 8-lb Yorkie mix.  She is so adorable everyone falls in love with her but she has some behavioral issues from being isolated, alone and non-socialized during her first year.  Violet is slowly learning to be more confident and self sufficient.  She enjoys walks on the leash and has even visited the dog park a few times. 

Violet loves to dress up so any new sweater or little dress would make her even cuter than she already is.  Violet is also working very hard on her training, so she would love any type of tiny treat, hard or soft, she is not picky.  Violet also enjoys small squeaky toys and treats.
