Help provide a warm bed, fence, and insulated doghouse to a dog in need.
Fences For Fido eases the frustration and loneliness of dogs living outside on chains by building fences for low-income families at no cost to help a dog live a chain-free life. The fences also keep dogs from escaping and ending up in shelters or becoming injured.
These fences allow improvement to a dogs quality of life, and it makes families and neighborhoods safer. Providing a warm shelter, free veterinary care and providing the family with education regarding basic care for their dog, it helps to ensure a dogs quality of life will continue to improve and will remain much better than it was when we found them.
Within a few short days of meeting Fences For Fido, the animals receive a custom-built, insulated doghouse and warm bed. For some, this is the first shelter and comfort they've known. Then the group assess whether the dogs need medical care and spaying or neutering. As quickly as possible, they build a fence and celebrate the un-chaining with volunteers, the Fidos, the family, and the community.
Greater Good Charities partners with Fences For Fido to provide fences, food, and shelter to low income families and their lovable dogs. Having already helped nearly 2000 dogs in Oregon and southwest Washington, we hope to continue to expand our program to build more fences for more dogs, and we want to act as a mentor for other organizations hoping to start similar organizations in their own states.
You can help. Just $15 helps provide a fence and doghouse for a dog living outside.
Fences For Fido, an all-volunteer 501c3 non-profit, attends to all needs by building a fence, removing the chain, supplying a warm dog house, providing critical vet care and spay/neuter, and returning yearly to ensure the dog lives a safe, un-chained life.
