In an upcoming November class
. . . to be announced . . .
OmBase will be donating the proceeds
of that class to Fences For Fido
Fences For Fido is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the welfare and quality of life for dogs living outdoors. Through their volunteer efforts, they create safer and improved conditions for chained dogs, provide education to the public, and help build healthier communities through awareness and compassion.
For dogs living outdoors on a chain, Fences For Fido reaches out to their guardian and offers a free fence, a new shelter, and free or reduced cost spay/neuter. With their services, dogs who were once chained will learn what it’s like to live, run, and play in a safe and more comfortable environment.
“I never imagined a couple of years ago when my husband, Casey, and I built our first fence that it would result in groups like Fences For Fido all around the country. Knowing that people care about chained dogs and that the issue is beginning to get the attention it deserves is encouraging and moving. Seeing a chained dog go from despondent and often times broken to playful and happy in a fence is an amazing experience. Thank you Fences for Fido for your compassion and hard work – the dogs of Portland appreciate it” —Amanda Arrington, Founder, Coalition to Un-chain Dogs
In honor of Lynda Pilger’s never ending love and compassion for our four-legged family members, Fences For Fido is dedicated to our dear friend. Were she here with us, Lynda would be the leader of our little pack, and she would also be the first in line to give each and every dog a tender loving hug.
