Fair Shake For Youth
offers NYC middle school students an opportunity to work hands-on with
therapy dogs in a structured weekly program. As they learn to
understand the dogs, they learn to understand each other. As they make
the dogs successful they succeed. Working with the dogs the kids learn
about the dogs, themselves and each other in ways that open up greater
possibilities for their life.
Twenty Years Ago,
back when FIDO was first organized in December of 1998, it was
Charlotte Gemmel's idea to hold a morning event that would bring the
dog owner community together. Betty Dowling’s came up with the name;
the rest is history. It was supposed to be a one-time affair, but there
was such a great reaction, that FIDO decided to make it a monthly
gathering. Support from the Prospect Park Alliance and Tupper Thomas
was indispensable, helping establish FIDO In Prospect Park as the
city-wide model of what Off-Leash could be, benefitting dog owners and
regular park users alike.
Special Guests include Sylvia Bedrosian from petfriendlypr.@gmail.com
who will be able to fill us in on the progress to save the animals in
Puerto Rico .

FIDO Receives the Lovgren Award &
"Volunteer Award" in recognition of their
Commitment to the Park slope Community
"Each year since 1979, the Park Slope
Civic Council has honored two people or
organizations for their outstanding
service to the community. The awards – one
for a local volunteer, the other for
professional service – are named for
George Lovgren, the Park Slope activist
who in the 1960s worked tirelessly to save
the Union Street firehouse (today, Squad
1) from closure. The awards epitomize the
Civic Council's philosophy – that it's the
people who care about their community that
have made Park Slope a great place to
We believe your work on behalf of dog
owners, Prospect Park visitors and the
community at large makes FIDO very well
deserving of this award, and we would be
honored to present this award in person
at our June Trustees' Meeting taking
place on Thursday, June 8th at the Old
Stone House in Washington Park at 7pm."
