WHAT WE DO

FIDO is a non-profit organization founded in 2005 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.
