Another dog in Charlotte got a taste of freedom over the weekend because its no longer tied to a chain.
The Charlotte Chapter of the Coalition to Unchain Dogs put up their 200th fence Sunday.
Volunteers have been building fences since 2009, and they've also been building up a strong reputation.
They work almost every weekend of the year.
Members of the group say chained dogs can be injured by tight collars or from getting tangled up in the chain.
American Heart Association studies also show dogs on chains are lonely, less healthy, and more aggressive.
Neya Warren started out with the core members of the group three years ago. She's now the Co-Director of the Charlotte Chapter of the Coalition to Unchain dogs.
Warren say chained dogs "are also susceptible to unwanted breeding. They're just sort of outside, sitting ducks and really heavily contributing to the number of dogs that are euthanized at Charmeck Animal Care Control".
Warren says the group also spays and neuters dogs for free.
The Duke Energy building will be lit up in yellow on Monday in honor of the group.
