Following the lead from a sister organization in Portland, Oregon, a new Lubbock-based initiative wants to help Texas dog owners unchain their dogs and let them live a leash-free life while they reside in their yards. According to KCBD, Jill Hoffman founded Texas Dogs Unchained and said, “…when you’ve seen and observed a dog that’s been on a chain, and then you see it off that chain, it’s night and day. It’s such joy. And it’s just such a great example of freedom.”

Of course, Hoffman wants the dogs to be safe, so she and other volunteers approach the dog owners with an idea – let Texas Dogs Unchained build a fence for them for free so their pets can roam beyond the small diameter that their leash allows them to pace.

According to the Texas Dogs Unchained Facebook page, they’ve already changed the lives of three sweet dogs named Nala, Phantom, and Bear who are running around enjoying the outdoors while staying within the confines of their yard.

Since they’re a new organization, they still need a lot of volunteers to aid in social media, marketing, client reach out and supply acquisition. If you’re interested, send them a message!
