Fido & Friends was formed to allow South Jersey Dog owners the chance to participate in a volunteer experience of a life time! Our dogs touch people and change lives! ​ Until you have experienced the difference the touch of a dog can make in a person's life, you have not lived. Some of our patients had beloved pets in the past and are unable to be with them. The site of our dogs causes eyes to light up and fond memories to be recanted! We have even had people who are "unresponsive" respond to our dogs presence. ​ For students, we teach basic dog care, do reading programs and class room presentations. If you educate a child in the proper care of pets and the all the wonderful things they can do, it fosters goodwill for generations to come. ​ We currently visit rehab hospitals, adult daycare centers and grammar schools for reading programs. There are several visits a week for you and your dog to choose from.
