At four months young, the Fido Love website already gathers upwards of 1,000 daily visitors. Based in Bend, OR, Fido Love matches dogs being re-homed with those ready to adopt a new best friend. Fido Love co-founder Reese Mercer says they hope to reduce the number of pets going into shelters. “We’re hoping this resource will empower people facing a tough situation to consider this option, making the shelter a last resort.” Several dogs have already found new homes through Fido Love, and the site is gathering interest in Washington and Northern California. Mercer says people appreciate being a part of the re-homing process. “They can interview new families and check on references instead of dropping their dog off at the back of a shelter not knowing what will become of him or her.” Learn more at FidoLove.com.
