About Us

Our Mission

Providing pet food to ensure that the bond between people and their pet companions is unbroken.

Our Story

We are a 501(c)(3), all volunteer organization, dedicated to helping people and their pet companions stay together. FIDO was founded in 2004 to establish an AniMeals program in partnership with Clackamas County Social Services and Senior Meals programs. Our program is modeled after the Helen Woodward Animal Shelter AniMeals program.

To address a growing local need, we created our Dog Food Bank which was eventually expanded to provide for feline pet companions too, so it is now known as FIDO Pet Food Bank. As of 2022 we expanded to include food for small animals, rabbits and birds.

The establishment of our Veterans Program and Pet Needs Pantry followed to address and better support our communities.

Additionally, FIDO is “on call” to help our communities and individuals when emergencies occur.

In 2023, our programs provided over 1,169,256 meals and a wide variety of supplies to 17,576 pet-companions in need!

Our Spay and Neuter Policy

FIDO recommends that any pet owner spay or neuter their pets, but we’re often asked “Why?” If you’d like to understand why, please read our PDF on the policy. FIDO – letter re spay neuter policy
