These two went to work to find solutions and formed Unchain Monroe. It all came about as Rachael said she passed a dog on a chainVICKI everyday and one day decided to contact the dog's owner and asked if she could help make the dog more com- fortable by getting it off it's chain. To her surprise and relief the owner, Jason Lott, was very glad to have some help and allowed Unchain Monroe to step in and put up a large dog kennel and shelter for him. The dog's name is Boscoe, and Jason texted Rachael recently and said "Boscoe is a different pup- py now and nowhere near as aggressive as he used to be. I know I have told you time and again, but thank you and I appreciate all you did for Boscoe" Jason went on to say his experience with Unchain Monroe was a very posi- tive one: "We took Boscoe in as a rescue and when we first got him he had anger issues with people and no one wanted to be around him. That be- ing said the only way he could be outside was on a runner. Unchain Monroe brought in and installed an SMITH endosed fence with an extra large dog house. Boscoe's atti- tude completely changed. He is a much happier dog" Catherine and Rachael said Boscoe is the first of many dogs they hope to help. If you have a dog you love that needs a kennd, dog house, even medical attention and you cannot afford this, please call or e-mail. Catherine promised no judgement - just upport and help is all Unchain Monroe will offer. Sunday, May 5 will be the next work day for Unchain Monroe setting up ken- nds.Volunteers are needed to do the physical work (all over the county). Recently my husband and I took down a kennel. It wasn't hard at all and took about 30 minutes. I look forward to seeing Unchain Monroe grow and see happier pets and owners all over the county. Financial contributions are also needed.
