Lori Hensley created a local non profit called the Coalition of Unchained Dogs. As the name implies, the goal of this local non profit is to free dogs from being chained. They don’t remove dogs from “bad” environment. Instead, they work on improving the life these dogs already have. They do it by providing the dog owners all of the dog’s needs like basic vet care, doghouses, spay/neuter surgeries, and even fenced play areas for free.
“You should come see what we do,” Lori offered. “We can always use more help.” I smiled politely and mumbled something lukewarm in response. As noble as the group’s objectives sounded, I did not consider myself an “animal person.” In truth, I found certain memes of humane activism (“I love animals, but hate people!”) to be alienating. I also never wanted to see another dog on a chain as long as I lived”
Lori said that she’s not doing it just for dogs, but also for people. She knows how much a dog owner loves his dogs. The problem is, they don’t have enough resources and time to give the dog better care.
