Chain Free Asheville Helps Make Dogs' Lives Better

ChainFree Asheville It's a sorry fact of life that some people believe it's okay for dogs to spend their days and nights at the end of a chain. Thanks in large part to Chain Free Asheville, a city of Asheville ordinance was passed last September banning unattended chaining. However, there is still a lot of work to be done -- many dogs in Buncombe County and elsewhere throughout the Carolina mountains are still forced to live outside on chains.

Chain Free Asheville and its corps of volunteers build fences and provide dog houses for these needy victims of quiet, invisible abuse. You can help by volunteering your time to build a fence or by making tax-deductibe donatiions of goods or funds. Chain Free Asheville especially needs igloos or plastic dog houses, water bowls, straw, tools (cordless drills especially), tarps, collars and leashes, a truck (really!), dog toys, office supplies, welded wire fencing, metal t-posts, gates and hardware, and 4x4 pposts.
