With an extremely generous grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust, Friends of Indianapolis Dogs Outside (FIDO) will expand our efforts to improve the quality of life for dogs in Indianapolis.

The one-year grant will be used to support FIDO's public education campaign for the city’s new care and treatment ordinance, FIDO’s core neighborhood outreach efforts, as well as strategic, long-range planning with a financial consultant to ensure our continued growth and success.


“We're grateful that the Trust has recognized our efforts to improve the lives of outside dogs in Indianapolis and we look forward to taking these efforts to the next level,” said FIDO Board President Jeni Christoffersen.
