UnChained’s mission is to provide California’s Central Coast youth with the opportunity for self-reflection and personal growth while training homeless dogs in need of adoption. Standing as a beacon of transformation on California’s Central Coast, UnChained guides at-risk youth and homeless dogs on a journey of mutual healing.

Founded in 2011, UnChained has been transforming lives by teaching at-risk youth to communicate with and rehabilitate dogs in need. Our journey, however, extends beyond mere training. It’s about uncovering empathy, redirecting lives, and creating lasting bonds. Our mission transcends the basics; it’s about embedding hope and charting a course toward a brighter, more caring future for our entire community.
