Hello group,
My name is Dawn Carlisle and I am on the Board of Directors as Secretary for the newly formed F.I.D.O. Org. (Fighting Irresponsable Dog Ownership)
We are currently finishing our 5013 filing and are going tax exempt. A web site is also being built and should be compleated soon.
F.I.D.O. will have memberships available as soon as the Federal non profit letter of acceptance is received.
For the past few months we have been planning a march on Washington DC to show that we, the responsable dog owners, will not stand for BSL any longer. We will be asking that all BSL laws be replaced with laws that charge the irresponsabe and negligent owners of any breed of dog that attacks with the offence.
We will also be asking that Insurance Comapnies that refuse insurance due to the breed of dog owned be be stopped from doing so.
This is a very busy time for F.I.D.O. There is much that needs to be done in a short amount of time. The Board of Directors will be inviting other Anti BSL groups, AKC, UKC, ADBA, National Breed Clubs and may more groups to join us in this fight.
We are still in need of State Representitives, minimum of 4 per state and 12 in larger states, County Reps for each State and Town/City/boro Reps within each county.
These reps will be responsable for the gathering of
1. government Legislators and leaders names addresses, districts, emails and phone numbers.
2. Names addresses phone numbers and contact person for all dog related establishments including but not limited to: Pet Shops, Vets, Grooming Salons, Doggie Day Cares, Kennels, Trainers, Weekend Dog walks, Dog Sitting Services etc etc etc
3. The name of, addresses, phone numbers and name of contact person in advertising of all local news papers in each State.

The reps will also be responsible for the

1. Printing out of flyers that we will send you via email. (we will be trying to get paper donated) and placemet of these in the dog related establishment.
2. Printing out of the petition that we will send you via email and its placement at the dog related establishment. The petitions will also have to be picked up and replaced weekly with the compleated ones being mailed to the head office.

As a rep you will also be required to present your self in a proper mannor and speak with management of the dog related establishment asking for permission to place the petitions and flyers.

We also need people to educate others on BSL and how it can affect them and their dog. About responsable dog ownership and what F.I.D.O. is doing. We are not fighting for a certain breed of dog. We are fighting for all dog breeds.

The rally in DC will have many respected speakers.
We are also hoping to get reps from all dog org.'s to attend the march.

This is the just the begining. We will not take no for an answer.

F.I.D.O. needs your help!!! Please email us if you would like to volunteer or have questions about what you can do.

I look forward to hearing from all of you
Dawn Carlisle
Secretary F.I.D.O. Org.
Owner DCK9
