FIDO members and neighbors attended a June dedication of a Memorial Bench honoring the late Tony Chiappelloni, FIDO President extraordinaire. Tony's nice Dorothy Difabio was on hand to accept an in memoriam book filled with "Tony" memorabilia.

FIDO also marked the installation of 12 fishing line recycling containers, made by FIDO's Paul Kowacki, installed by Prospect Park staff, and maintained by W.I.L.D. These depositories are part of the local effort to save children, dogs and wildlife from being tangled and hurt by discarded fishing lines.
It's Official - Kensington Dog Run Funded.
"We got the funding--now the long design, bidding and building process. Fido's support helped this happen."

A Positive Tail
What finer way to begin 2016 than to receive a one time donation of $250 from FIDO In Prospect Park's Steering Committee, a gift to Positive Tails that will help support their effort to provide grants to individuals who are in financial straits; who face a medical emergency with their pets. In the usual course of affairs, such people often direct their veterinarians to put the animal to sleep, as they cannot afford the procedure. Positive Tails furnishes grants to such people in hope to avoid such circumstances.
