— A Durham anti-tethering group will mark 100 fences built for outdoor dogs Aug. 11.

The Coalition to Unchain Dogs builds free fences for dogs who would otherwise be tied up outside. They argue dogs who are tied or chained can get bored, depressed or aggressive as a result.

The group will mark the 100th dog helped with host a fundraiser Monday at 6 p.m. at 414 Glenwood Ave. in Raleigh. Ten percent of the purchase of food and drinks at the event will benefit the coalition's work.
