Chained dog dies shortly after being rescued from yard in Kansas City

I was not doing outreach this day because I was attending a volunteer meeting for the Chain of Reality event going on in Kansas City.

During the meeting at Spay Neuter Kansas City there was some commotion and I saw Kate, the outreach coordinator, running around.

After the meeting, I went to the area for outreach volunteers to gather supplies for the dogs. Once I walked to that area, I saw a dog lying on towels and blankets on the floor. His whole body was covered except for his face. They had rice filled socks that were microwaved to keep him warm.

This dog was found by Kate and Lindsay, another volunteer. The dog was chained in someone's yard. A concerned neighbor called about the dog. Kate and Lindsay could not find the dog at first. The neighbor helped them find him.

He was very emaciated. He was chained in the yard, laying in the mud and leaves. He was partially buried in the leaves and because he was so emaciated, he was difficult to see.

He died, surrounded by loving volunteers, about 30 minutes after he was saved.

  1. Sadly, this happens multiple times a day in the U.S. Learn why the practice of 24/7 chaining is one of the most "forgotten" about and overlooked animal welfare issues out there and what you can do to change minds and laws and free dogs from a lifetime of chains:
