Only a few weeks left to help Fido!

Join us for a FREE activity to help dogs in need!

Every June, visitors to the Woolen Mill Store have the opportunity to make dog toys for Fences for Fido, an all-volunteer 501c3 non-profit dedicated to helping chained-up dogs.

Make as many dog toys to donate as you like, for absolutely free. Also make 1 toy for your own dog, also free!

So far we have collected 96 toys! Our goal is to have 400 toys!

Fences For Fido improves the quality of life for dogs living outdoors by building fences free of charge for families who keep their dogs on chains, tethers, and in small enclosures. In addition to the fence, they also provide an insulated doghouse for each dog as well as spay/neuter services and emergency veterinary care when needed.
