Exchange Your Chain

Unchained New York is thrilled to announce the launch of our “Exchange Your Chain” initiative! At no cost to Suffolk County residents, we will be providing heavy duty, light-weight tie outs that are appropriate for size and breed of dog in exchange for every chain received. Tie-outs can hold up 250lbs and provide reprieve from the heavy, cumbersome weight of a chain.

Animal advocates have been working to tirelessly to strengthen our laws. And, at UCNY, we have been working with the law makers to make the use of chains illegal in Suffolk County. Unchained New York’s “Exchange Your Chain” initiative will help facilitate a seamless and costless transition to a chain free county.

While we do encourage everyone to keep their dogs inside as companion animals, we realize that is not the reality on Long Island currently. This is a small step towards a more humane Suffolk County.

If you are interested in exchanging your chain, please call us at 631.714.6177 or e-mail us at

We are a 501c3, volunteer-run organization, so if you would like to donate a tie-out to help facilitate our new initiative, please visit our amazon wish-list:
