THE STORY:

Mary lived in a small apartment complex in East Durham for 19 years.  She had the top corner apartment with the best view, and the landlord let her tend the flower beds on the property.  She loved being outside with Lil Rider, her 12 year old Pekingese, and talking to all the neighbors. Everyone knew Mary and Lil Rider. But one day Section 8 Housing re-evaluated Mary’s living arrangements and ruled that they would no longer subsidize a two-bedroom apartment.  Unable to afford her living expenses without her Section 8 help, 72-year-old Mary was forced to move to a one-bedroom apartment on the other side of town.  The emotional and financial toll was overhelming, and the new apartment complex required a pet deposit. Having used all her savings on the move, and not knowing what else to do, she faced surrendering Lil Rider - her only companion for the last 12 years and the only bright spot in her life since losing her home.

That's when The Coalition to Unchain Dogs stepped in by helping Mary with her pet deposit.  Ever since the move, Mary struggled to face the thought of life without her beloved companion.  Now, she won't have to.

The Coalition to Unchain Dogs serves pet owners who lack access to pet care resources. Guided by our belief that poverty is not a fair measure of how much people love their pets, we reach out to deliver services directly to the doorsteps of people living in underserved areas of our community. Our work falls into three main categories: 

By providing fences and doghouses, the fence-building program frees dogs living on chains and gives families and pets a safe place to strengthen their bond. Prior to building a fence, we spay or neuter each dog.  We've unchained over 2,000 dogs to date.

Since poverty-stricken neighborhoods typically lack access to veterinary care, we provide vet care and transportation to and from appointments through our outreach and wellness program. We also distribute pet care supplies such as collars, leashes, dog food, indoor crates, and flea/tick meds. Under this program, more than 4,200 dogs and cats have been spayed or neutered.

Finally, our shelter intervention program helps prevent the need for surrender by assisting with veterinary care, pet deposits, and shelter fees for owners reclaiming their lost pets. Services like these help keep pets in the homes they already have and out of our over-crowded shelter and rescue system, ending the vicious cycle of "rescue and repeat."

Services like these are both life-changing and life-saving; in our eight years of existence, we've seen entire communities transform for the better. Help us reach our goal of raising $25,000 so we can extend our reach and change even more lives.
