As a result of COVID-19, the Native Nations and Indian reservations across the country have been disproportionally impacted, both financially and physically. For that reason, Fences For Fido has committed to helping one of the hardest hit communities within Oregon, the Warm Springs Reservation. Yet, given the fact that our organization was unable to build fences for nearly 8 weeks, we have a significant backlog of dogs living on chains and families in need of help, both for fences and dog food. Most of the dogs waiting on chains throughout Oregon and Washington are on the Warm Springs Reservation, so Fences For Fido has created Operation Warm Springs-Unchained & Loved.


On Saturday, June 27th, with the permission of tribal leaders, Fences For Fido volunteers will build 10 panel fences and deliver dog/cat food to those families and dogs in need, all within a few hours.

For post settings and fence builds, you will receive your "Thanks for Volunteering" email after you click to attend. This will have the email address for the coordinator for this event.


We so appreciate your dedication and commitment to Fences For Fido. You are the very heart of our organization, therefore, our primary concern is your safety and wellbeing. For that reason, Fences For Fido will only build panel fences during this time and for the foreseeable future. Panel fences allow for 6 feet of distance between volunteers and the number of volunteers can also be significantly reduced. Further, it reduces the number of time volunteers will be gathered together on site.

We are also changing the way in which we operate on fence build day. Please read the following so that you are fully aware of expectations and requirements prior to and on fence build day.

On Site Safety Guidelines:

  • Bring with you and wear a face mask and gloves as you will be required to wear both for the duration you’re on site. (Eye protection is recommended)
  • Maintain 6' social distance at all times.
  • We will have on site: disinfectant wipes, hand soap and sanitizer, and paper towels

Prior to Your Arrival:

  • If you have been in contact with any known COVID-19 patients, we ask that you complete the 14 day quarantine before joining a build.
  • If you feel sick or have any symptoms of the virus, we ask that you not attend a build. Please take your temperature before coming to a build to check for fever.
