(N.Morgan) One of the saddest things to see is a dog, left outside to endure the brutal elements, chained or tethered and obviously forgotten, neglected, and ignored.
Belinda discovered two dogs living abandoned in her neighborhood, and she took them in. Giving them food and a home was easy, but her landlord did not allow dogs in the house she was renting, so she had to keep them outside. And without a fenced yard, that meant Mama and Oreo had to be chained.
One day, Mama broke free of her chain, and wandered away. But Mama and Belinda were lucky, because the County animal control officers brought Mama back home and shared with Belinda, now Mama’s human ‘Mama’, some very special contact information which would change their lives.
In the last several years, organizations have been popping up all over the world to help rescue these precious souls and give them the loving, happy, free lives they deserve, one such group is Coalition to Unchain Dogs.
The Coalition to Unchain Dogs is an organization that “improves the welfare of dogs living in under-served communities as well as dogs continuously chained outdoors by offering information and free services including wellness care, spay/neuter, vaccinations and fences. By providing nonjudgmental assistance and building relationships within the community, the Coalition to Unchain Dogs bolsters connections between dogs and their human companions.:
In the video below, see how rescued dogs Mama and Oreo react when the rescuers let them off of their leashes and they get their first real taste of freedom.
The compassion demonstrated by the rescuers for these precious beings is awe inspiring.
