Who We Are

Unchained Melodies Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to freeing the chained/penned dog, and bringing our 'best friend' into the home and family, advocating against animal abuse and neglect and to bring Man's Best Friend into the home as a family pet.

Our organization is an anti-chaining/pennind organization. We are an educate, legislate and rescue the back yard dog and any dog in a life threatening situation. Unchained Melodies is a registered 501c3 nonprofit group and licensed in the State of Missouri by the Dpt. of Ag . We are working to change laws and educate society that it's not OK for a dog to live chained or penned. Dogs long to be part of the family, they are not lawn ornaments, they are living beings deserving of love and respect. Please consider adopting a previously chained dog today.
