Our 2017 Fences For Fido Backyard Heroes Gala was a success far beyond anything we could have imagined!
THANK YOU to everyone who joined us, gave from the heart, and helped fill the room with so much love, warmth and celebration.
Whether you support us from your home or in backyards building fences, we have felt your support as we've unchained more than 1500 dogs!
Our work is just getting started as we continue to help our Fidos and also help groups around the country get their start as unchaining organizations. So please continue to support our life-changing work.

Such a busy weekend of post settings and fence buildings! Volunteers were all over our region, including the unchaining of 5! dogs in Woodland, Washington. Here's a little sneak peek (thanks to Brianna Grubb) of Daggit, Xena, Oscar, Lewis, and Sophie.
Many thanks to Robbie and the students from the Tongue Point Job Corps for their great participation. Full album will be coming soon. Please donate and volunteer so we can create and share many more moments like these. www.fencesforfido.org

Fences For Fido not only builds fences for dogs in parts of Oregon and Washington, we are also mentoring other new unchaining groups across the country as part of our Unchained Planet program. If you are interested in starting your own unchaining group, please send us a message.

Recently, Fences For Fido volunteers made the trek to Amarillo, Texas to help a brand new unchaining group, Texas Panhandle Pups Unchained, build their first two fences.

Thanks to trailblazer and Texas Panhandle Pups Unchained founder, Melanie Henry, an amazing and hardworking group of Texans, and FFF volunteers Steve and Elizabeth Sagmiller, Michelle Coppola, and Melinda Miller, Bruce and Rocky are enjoying their lives unchained. On behalf of all the FFF volunteers, it was all our pleasure. We had a blast with you fine Texas folks!

We are beyond delighted to report that since this trip, TPPU has unchained 3 more lucky dogs with many more dogs on their wait list. Please join us as we celebrate compassion in action and then check out TPPU's FB page at https://www.facebook.com/TxPanhandlePupsUnchained.

This is Bruce in #Amarillo, who's been on a chain for over 3 years. Right now a mighty little crew of #fencesforfido #volunteers are building his fence. They flew to #Texas to help Mel Henry and the fledgling group TX Panhandle Pups Unchained build him a fence and change his life forever. #txpanhandlepupsunchained
We do this because 9 years ago, a mighty little crew from Coalition to Unchain Dogs flew to Oregon from NC to help us build our first fence for Chopper. We are so grateful to them and will continue to pay this gift forward until one day, we have an #unchainedplanet. :) #whywefido #coalitiontounchaindogs @coalitiontounchaindogs ❤️❤️

Ever wonder why our volunteers build in all types of weather and rough conditions? This is #whywefido ❤️ It's all for the snuggles and fido kisses. #fencesforfido

On New Year's Eve 2 bundles of love and spunk, Peppy and BB received a new fence! ❤️❤️Providing freedom doesn't stop on holidays for our dedicated volunteers at #fencesforfido ❤️🐶Can you feeling love?

Great News! The start time for building Roxy's fence tomorrow morning in #Gervais has been changed to 10AM!!! We still need a few more hearty #volunteers to join us at the build, just a bit south of #Woodburn along I5. See you tomorrow and please sign up here: www.fencesforfido.org/volunteering

Three chained dogs in Texas are now chained NO MORE. Their chains are now good only for things like spelling out words or making displays at outreach events! Thanks to all the founding members of Texas Dogs Unchained and all the Fences For Fido volunteers and other volunteers who came to help. This weekend surely represents a pivotal turning point for chained dogs in Texas. We will never forget all the moments shared and the many more than must be seared in your memories. Thank you. (Thanks to volunteer Susan Hafer for the photo). #fencesforfido #texasdogsunchained
