From Fences for Fido:
Through our volunteer efforts, we create safer and improved conditions for chained dogs, provide education to the public, and help build healthier communities through awareness and compassion.For dogs living outdoors on a chain, Fences For Fido reaches out to their guardian and offers a free fence, a new shelter, and free or reduced cost spay/neuter. With our services, dogs who were once chained will learn what it’s like to live, run, and play in a safe and more comfortable environment.
