Fences For Fido Needs Your Help!
No experience needed!
These angels get dogs off chains! They build fences (and shelters) for dogs (at no charge) so the owners can unchain them.
Dolly - Before and After
So, guess what? Did you see it on the news? Someone stole their truck and a couple thousand dollars' worth of tools.
The thieves apparently went 4-wheeling in the truck, damaging the undercarriage, busting the gas tank and siphoning out the gas, then spilling it all over the interior.
"We'll be ok," says Michele Coppola, Fences For Fido's Communications and Operations Coordinator. "The truck is repairable and we're hoping insurance will cover our lost tools."
Most important, Michele says, is that "No builds have to be cancelled. Still, it is making it difficult for us because that truck is our 'Daily Driver.' "
But what the group really needs most... are VOLUNTEERS.
Especially those who live, or are willing to travel, outside the Portland metro-area, where most of the builds are.
"You don't need any fence-building skill, tools or training as we provide everything," she says. "Just show up with a big heart and help us improve a dog's life forever. It takes 3-4 hours on a weekend morning and we've freed a dog!"

Once You See a Dog Unhooked,
You'll Be Hooked!!!
"We are desperate for help," Michele says. "On any given weekend, rain or shine, we are building 2-6 fences for dogs that are chained or tethered or in enclosures that are too small for them.
"Many of these dogs have been on chains their whole lives," she says. "We are a non-profit organization based in Portland. Since we were founded in 2009, we have freed nearly 1,800 dogs in NW Oregon, Central Oregon and SW Washington."
