Alabama Chained Dogs & Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to bettering the lives of man’s best friend.  We help chained dogs by educating pet-owners about the harmful impact of chaining has on the companion animal. Psychological damage begins the minute the dog is chained. We assist with veterinary, food, and dog houses for those who qualify.

All dogs receiving our assistance are required to be spayed or neutered, with the exception of senior or sick dogs, as advised by our veterinary partners in an effort to control backyard breeding in our state and control how many homeless dogs enter our shelters in the future. 

Alabama Chained Dogs & Rescue is dependent on donations and volunteers to unchain dogs in our state. We are centrally located in Alabama with volunteers in several counties.  Through social networking, we are able to assist dogs with the help of volunteers throughout the state. 


Alabama Chained Dogs & Rescue began in August 2013 when our President offered a man and his dog a ride home from a grocery store. It was nearly 100 degrees and the concrete was blistering hot. The man accepted the ride. When they arrived at his house, he chained his dog to a tree next to his other chained dog.  It was there that Alabama Chained Dogs was born. Both dogs were spayed and received a 10x20 kennel each because of generous donations.
