Music Helps Chained Dogs

New volunteer group helps unchain hearts

By: Heather Davis | July 11, 2011

Animal advocates have formed a new group to help free dogs from their chains. Based in East Nashville, Unchained Hearts is dedicated to building fences for dogs stuck on chains and educating owners about unchaining dogs. The group plans to work with individuals who are open to making life better for their dogs through not only fence building but better veterinary care, socialization and more.

On July 16 at 9pm, The 5 Spot in East Nashville is hosting a benefit concert complete with local acts Tiger Blood, Suicide Hearts, Good Americans and Molly Conley. Tickets are $5 at the door and all proceeds will go directly into the "build a fence" account for Unchained Hearts. (See poster below.)

As the organization in newly formed, the group does not currently have nonprofit status and donations are not yet tax deductible. The fundraiser is sponsored in part by Wags and Whiskers and Nashville Paw Magazine.
