FIDO: Friends of Indianapolis Dogs Outside

We are an all-volunteer group that focuses on helping dog owners to improve the quality of life for their outside dogs. Our specific mission is to help owners find alternatives to continuous chaining as a method of dog containment. We offer guidance and temporary assistance to owners who are willing to work alongside us to improve their dogs’ quality of life.

You can help FIDO by using Goodshop.com to shop online. Each time you shop through this portal, Goodshop will make a donation to our cause. And you can also save money on items ranging from Godiva chocolate from FTD and tax software from TurboTax to active pullover hoodies from Old Navy. There is no easier way to help our dogs than signing up, selecting Friends of Indianapolis Dogs Outside – FIDO as your cause, and using Goodshop when shopping online!

We also have an easy way to earn donations for FIDO by shopping online with Amazon! By shopping at AmazonSmile, you can help FIDO earn 0.5% on every purchase.
