About The Team

C.H.A.I.N.E.D. Inc.’s mission is to get each outdoor chained dog off the chain, one dog at a time.

We enhance the lives of 24/7 chained/outside dogs by providing life enhancing supplies & services including: insulated dog houses, straw, safe fenced yards/kennels, spay/neuter assistance, vaccines, heartworm prevention, treats, toys, love and most importantly… owner education and resources. Correcting the problem where it originates decreases the number of homeless and neglected animals.

Please JOIN OUR TEAM and start fundraising to #TakeThePlunge during Bark-A-Bout’s #PlungeForPaws Main Event, Sunday, December 13th, 2020!

#TooChickenToPlunge? No worries! JOIN OUR TEAM and fundraise to save animals in need this winter. Those that raise $100 or more still get a free tshirt and free admission to the #PlungeForPaws Main Event, Sunday, December 13, 2020.

Every dog is worth saving and this is our way of saving them! 

Since 2011, C.H.A.I.N.E.D. Inc. volunteers have assisted: 2,897 dogs/puppies (some cats/kittens too); 880 igloos/barns given to outside dogs; 648 spay/neuter; 347 surrendered/rescued; 84 adoptions; 68 freedom kennels built.

Life-saving #PlungeForPaws donations will allow C.H.A.I.N.E.D. Inc. to purchase: bales of straw for outdoor dog house insulation. Donations will also provide outdoor chained dogs with warm shelter and food for the winter. We plan to purchase insulated outdoor igloo dog houses, warm heating pads, heated water bowls so water doesn’t freeze over, dry kibble food, comfortable collars and lightweight leashes. Most importantly, we will provide pet owners with educational materials on how to keep their dogs safe and healthy during Michigan’s brutal and deadly cold winter weather. We encourage all pet owners to bring their dogs indoors, especially during the coldest nights, so we provide indoor crates. 

C.H.A.I.N.E.D. Inc. services SW Detroit, Ecorse, River Rouge and Downriver Communities.

More Info


Every dollar (and goosebump) raised through Bark-A-Bout's #PlungeForPaws2020 Fundraiser will give your favorite pet rescue the ability to continue their mission to bring warmth and health to animals in need this winter!! Money raised will help pay for critical life-saving pet-care supplies and owner education. Without intervention, unfortunately many abandoned and chained outdoor pets will die a very slow and painful death this winter of hypothermia, dehydration and starvation.


We invite all human supporters to TAKE THE “VIRTUAL PLUNGE” and raise money for pets in need!

Due to the new Covid-19 restrictions we have decided to virtualize our #PlungeForPaws2020 event. Instead of coming into Bark-A-Bout’s Aquatic Center to #TakeThePlunge in our ice-cold pool, we ask each “plunger” to submit a short video by Monday, December 14th @ 12pm of themselves having a bucket of ice-water poured over their head, (similar to the “Ice Bucket Challenge”).

You can EARN UP TO 100 BONUS PLUNGE POINTS to help your favorite pet rescue win the Bark-A-Bout Team’s Grand Prize Donation by submitting your "Virtual Plunge" video by Monday, Dec. 14th @ 12pm! Please visit Bark-A-Bout's Plunge For Paws, 2020 Webpage for all the exciting new details!


The Bark-A-Bout staff is excited to give all of our #PlungeForPaws2020 donations we have collected throughout the season to the pet rescue that has the highest Team Score! (Online Donations + Cash Donations + Bonus Plunge Points). The pet rescue winner will be announced TUESDAY, December 15th @ 12pm via Bark-A-Bout’s Facebook Page. We will upload a collaboration of all “Virtual Plunge Videos” and announce the Grand Prize Winner within that video.


The Bark-A-Bout Team is generously donating a 43” Flatscreen TV to the person who takes the Virtual Plunge, submits their video by the deadline, and has the highest Personal Score (“Cash + Online Donations + Plunge Points)! The winner of the flatscreen TV will be announced December 15th @ 1pm via Bark-A-Bout’s Facebook Page.
