Portland, October 20th, 2013. The “Fences For Fido” HOWL-o-ween BINGO drew a cheerful crowd and raised $660. The amount will fully fund a fence—a space of freedom—for one of the group’s waiting, chained Fidos named Boomer. The event was at Joe’s Restaurant on the Beaverton-Hillsdale Hwy. Board Member Patti Loverink and a member of the nonprofit’s foster committee celebrated with the coordinator of their annual rummage sale, Sue Schroeder.
Here are some fun photos from benefit:

A full fence sponsorship is just $600, which provides an insulated dog house, dog bed, freedom fence and spay/neuter for a dog living outside, just like Boomer here. To sponsor freedom for one of the 45+ dogs on our waiting list, please visit www.FencesForFido.org/donate.
I am a client of one of the main volunteers in the organization and have been financially donating for 2 years. The things he has told me about being a part of the builds and seeing the dogs run free is something I hope to experience some day. I have to tell you, I think the dogs are pretty lucky to have a group of people who care so much for them and their chained life. My passion is dogs and I thank all of you for doing this sometimes not so glamorous by much needed chore. You not only save dog’s lives, but you give them the chance for a happier life. You all should be proud. Bless he beasts and the children. Give them shelter form the storm. Very cool
