Let's build Charlie a play pen!

  • June 28 · 10:00 AM

Come on out and feel the joy of freeing a young pup from a chain. We are building a fence for Charlie, a young golden girl, who needs a place to run and play like all young dogs. No building skills needed, just the desire to free a dog from its chain and meet new people who share that desire. Please email me for the address as it is a private residence in Bend. Hope to meet you there.

    I am extremely pleased to see that good Bend Canine Friends stepped up to the plate to help out today. You are great people! Thank you all for your selflessness to help our canine friends have better lives! :-) Hope you feel better soon, Martha.

      update! Owners report Charlie and Hannah are getting along so pen is ok as-is.

      Great news! I was hoping that would be the case. Usually older dogs put the younger dogs in their place. : )

    So sorry I was sick and missed the opportunity to meet all of the new volunteers. I would like to thank all of you who took the time to come out and help today and I hope you will consider joining us again in July. We still need some volunteers to help at our booth in Drake Park on the 4th, we will have dog houses set up for kids to paint so we could use some extra help. It is from 11 to 4 on the 4th, please email me if you can help out. We have a place to park on the westside just a short walk to the park.

    Very nice, hardworking group of like-minded dog people. We could only stay 90 minutes but we felt we were helpful during that time. Thanks to the crew leaders and organizers.

    I would love to participate too, but I am in Montana right now, and will probably be driving back to Bend that weekend. Please keep posting these Martha, I will get to participate someday.

      No problem Paula we will be here. I am a volunteer with Fences for Fido and we are just getting our Central Oregon chapter up and running. Check out our website to see what we are all about at www.fencesforfido.org. We are a non-profit all volunteer. Look forward to meeting you at a build in the near future.

      I did check out your website and I think it's so awesome what your group does. I want to sign up as a volunteer, but we travel so much it seems I am hardly ever in Bend. I don't want to look like a flake because I can never make it to any events. I've only gotten to go on one meetup in this group, and it makes me feel bad. As soon as I get back from Montana, I should be there for a couple weeks at least, so maybe then. :)
