Adopt an UnChained Dog

When you adopt an UnChained dog, you get a dog who, through positive clicker training, has learned basic manners such as sit, down, stay and loose-leash walking.

More importantly, you get a dog who has received love and reassurance from its youth trainers, UnChained coaches, and foster family, resulting in new-found confidence and socialization.

You’ll also receive the satisfaction of knowing that your dog gave unconditional love to deserving youth in your community, offering them hope and confidence in return.




Tiana is a snuggly, love of a lap dog and is the mother of Louise (shown above).

Tiana is precious and calm, perfect for working with her youth trainers at the Kinship Center in Salinas. She is great with other dogs and is happy to be around people, even strangers, becoming quickly bonded to anyone who’s got some extra love to give.

Speaking of bonded, these two love each other so much and are hoping to find a home together (although they can live separately as well). Tiana and Louise are an easy addition to any family, and the one who gives them the opportunity will be rewarded with wet noses and total affection.

Bring them home today!



Meet Kai Boss, but you can call him Boss for short!

Boss was rescued off the streets by Salinas Animal Services and hopped ino the loving arms of Peace of Mind Dog Rescue. Now he’s making a name for himself in our class at the Monterey County Youth Center in Salinas.

Not much is known about this little guy, but he sure is friendly with everyone he meets. He does have a little trouble remembering his manners when meeting new dogs and is easily misunderstood by them, so a patient adopter with mature family members would be best to help him learn in a calm environment.

Visit Peace of Mind Dog Rescue to learn all about our little Boss-pup!


Chili Ranch

Ranch is a very stylish 4-5 year old dude, a comedian with quite a sense of humor. He loves playing fetch, running zoomies between the living room, kitchen and garage, is food motivated which has really helped him during beginning obedience training class, but best of all, he loves to cuddle. He is a 55 pound lap and Velcro dog. You'll never go into the bathroom alone again. He loves riding shotgun, and really pays attention to the scenery passing by.

He enjoys playing and eating frozen hard boiled eggs, frozen, raw marrow bones and Kong's stuffed with peanut butter, bananas, and plain Greek yogurt. His foster mama never has to worry about what he does when she's not home because he's sound asleep in her bed . . . even though he pretends the paw prints on the quilt don't belong to him!

His nicknames range from Ranchie to Chili Ranch to Rancharito to just "Baby Boy"... he's going to be the very best friend you'll ever have!!!

Ranch is not a fan of the felines, and is super choosy on his dog friends . . . some he loves, some not.

He is an all-around amazing guy, who deserves to find his forever family and home!!! Could it be with you?!



What a HUNK!

Jake came to SCTW after his family had to rehome him because they were leaving the country for a military assignment. They have had Jake since he was 8 weeks old, and he will be 6 in October 2018. Jake went through knee surgery last year and cannot over exert himself due to a risk for re-injury. He is great with children, dogs, and his own family cats. (will chase cats outside, but HEY, he's a dog!)

Please help SCTW find Jake his forever-FOREVER family! Our hearts are breaking for him, but we just know in our hearts that there is a family out there that can't wait to adopt him! Could it be you???
