Little Lost Girl

Early one chilly September morning in 2010 I heard what sounded like a kitten crying while I was getting out of the car at the local YMCA. When I heard it again I followed the sound to a pickup in the parking lot. A small gray kitten came out from behind the right rear tire, ran right to me when I spoke to her, and snuggled against me when I picked her up.

A Chain Free Life For Dogs

Help provide a warm bed, fence, and insulated doghouse to a dog in need.Make it a monthly gift by checking the "Make this a Monthly Gift" box and you will help provide shelter for dogs each and every month. Fences For Fido eases the frustration and loneliness of dogs living outside on chains by building fences for low-income families at no cost to help a dog live a chain-free life. The fences also keep dogs from escaping and ending up in shelters or becoming injured. Within a few short days of meeting Fences For Fido, the animals receive a custom-built, insulated doghouse and warm bed. For some, this is the first shelter and comfort they've known. Then the group assess whether the dogs need medical care and spaying or neutering. As quickly as possible, they build a fence and celebrate the un-chaining with volunteers, the Fidos, the family, and the community.

You can help. Just $15 helps provide a fence and doghouse for a dog living outside.
