Dog-loving group aims to curtail strays, create dog park in Oak Cliff

F.I.D.O. is a group of dog-loving Oak Cliff neighbors that recently organized, inspired by Bike Friendly Oak Cliff.

The group is identifying dog-friendly venues, much as “bike-friendly” businesses in Oak Cliff are identified with a window sticker. They are planning monthly social gatherings to raise awareness of stray dogs in our neighborhood and raise money for a dog park.

Members of the nonprofit group are scouting sites for the park, says neighborhood resident Robbie Good.

“An equal challenge lies in building a strong public support group,” he says.

F.I.D.O., which stands for “Finding Inspired Dog Owners”, has a krewe  — Krewe de Chew — for the Oak Cliff Mardi Gras parade March 6. To join the krewe, help build the float and participate in the parade, sign up here.

Good says they are working on a website and blog, but for now, the best way to get information about F.I.D.O. online is on Facebook.
