Mission Statement

UnChained fosters empathy and respect in at-risk youth through animal advocacy. Our vision is a community where people are capable, inspired and committed to respect, care for and protect all sentient beings, whether they are humans, or animals. Our vision is a community where people teach their peers how to be kind to themselves and to one another. Our vision is a community where the small, young, old, disabled, furry, and feathered are never intentionally harmed by the hands of another human being. Our vision is a community where people are not motivated by money or politics, but motivated by compasssion and empathy to protect and care for those who are unable to protect and care for themselves.

Description

UnChained uses the Canines Teaching Compassion program, an Animal Assisted Therapy (ATT) program, to help to change the lives of kids and save the lives of dogs by matching at-risk youth and shelter dogs together! The youth learn positive communication and interaction with one another through teaching the dogs good manners, social skills and basic commands This training increases the dogs' chances of becoming adopted, while it teaches the youth impulsivity-control, mastery of a skill, future orientation and the value of restorative justice.
