Provide a free fenced area for the chained dogs;

Provide free spay/neuter not only to the chained dogs but all animals on the property;

Description

Rescue of Chained K-9s (ROCK) does outreach to the owners of chained dogs. ROCK offers to build a free fenced enclosure as well as free spay/neuter. Our only requirement is mandatory spay/neuter of the chained animal as well as any unaltered cat/dog on the property. The size of our enclosures depend on how many animals and the lay out of the property but usually we build an 20 x 20 x 5. New dog houses are provided if needed. Cedar chips and/or straw are placed in the dog houses. Modifications to the fenced enclosures will be made for the "escape artist." We have fund raisers and educational table events.
