The ACC has a resource for your pets
In all the chaotic changes happening around us it is easy to forget that our most vulnerable population have pets. In addition, in these difficult times it may be difficult for some people with limited means to feed their pets. The ACC has knowledge of a resource that can help, F.I.D.O. (Friends Involved in Dog Outreach) of Clackamas County; don't let the name fool you, they provide for cats too.
F.I.D.O. has created a food bank for dogs and cats where, once the paperwork is complete, people can go and pick up what they need. F.I.D.O. also offers a program called AniMeals, where they team up with Meals on Wheels to deliver pet food. And of course, F.I.D.O. accepts donations of unopened food and monetary contributions. F.I.D.O is a 501(c)(3) founded in 2004 and according to their website, F.I.D.O. provided over 288,584 meals for 4,741 pets in 2019. To take advantage of this resource please call F.I.D.O. at 971-678-6940 or visit their website at www.FIDOAniMeals.org.
