Fences For Fido are miracle workers in my opinion. As a dog lover, I had watched several dogs changed for several years, to guard a business near me. Neighbors including myself tried with no avail to get rescue organizations to help in this dire situation.When I heard of this group, they were called. They came immediately and began their work to unchain what turned out to be 5 dogs scattered around the property. Some were hidden in dark, muddy areas surrounded by bushes and work trucks. Most were isolated from each other. Puppies and two of the chained dogs were relinquished and adopted out. Dogs remaining received their own fenced yard with dog house, bedding, straw over muddy areas, toys, treats and several return visits by the volunteers who had fallen in love with these dogs. All were spayed and neutered. Some had extra vet visits for their health. It has been a year since FFF began helping the "Railroad 5" and their tireless efforts still continue to this day for these 5 dogs. Fences For Fido and their members exemplify to me, that helping dogs doesnt stop at food, water and shelter. They are raising the standard for truly helping dogs. This is the way it should be and I am glad to see this first hand. They have changed the lives of Gordo, Nike, Dodger, Tryke and Shanaenae, and hundreds of others and changed my life too.
