This is Penelope (“Nelly”). A city goat chained 24/7. Thanks to Multnomah County Animal Services, Nelly’s family reached out to Fences For Fido to ask if we’d consider building a fence for their chained (and loved) family goat. It took us a nanosecond to respond: of course we will! Then COVID-19 hit, and all builds were postponed. But, we finally got to meet Nelly this week in person, and boy did we swoon over this girl. So please join us on Saturday, May 16th for her build day. We absolutely cannot wait for you to meet her!

On Site Safety Guidelines

Face coverings or masks, along with six feet of physical distancing, significantly slow or stop the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, it is our policy that all volunteers must wear face coverings and practice physical distancing at all of our fence builds.
