Unchained Melodies Dog Rescue

What We Do

We educate, legislate, and rescue the chained/penned dog, or any dog that is suffering from abuse or neglect. We speak for the animals that have no voice, suffering in silence in backyards throughout Mid-Missouri.

Why We're Great

We strive to make a difference for all dogs through education and writing stronger ordinances and laws. We were very successful this year! A "No Unsupervised Tethering" ordinance was unanimously passed in Columbia!

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

We receive no government funding and our focus is on community pets. Members of the community reach out to us for help, and we need community support to cover the enormous vet bills we incur and properly care for the dogs in our care until they are re-homed.
