About Us

 

About Us WhiteThe fetch Foundation is dedicated to saving lives in the animal and human communities through innovative strategies and unique programs that supports, equips, and trains first responders. We accomplish this mission by providing the life saving tools in “The FIDO BAG®” that is used by first responders to provide life saving intervention to family pets that are caught in a fire or other emergency situations. We want to see every fire truck and emergency vehicle in our nation equipped with a FIDO BAG®. We also work closely with other rescue organizations and shelters to identify dogs that have the potential to be trained to become Search and Service dogs or a therapy dog for veterans or people with disabilities.

The fetch Foundation was formed as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in February of 2010 in order to provide a safe place for homeless dogs that were neglected or abused.  While networking with other rescue organizations and shelters, founder Marie Peck realized these K9(s) could have a career!  By connecting the right dog with a veteran in need of companionship, these K9(s) would serve a purpose beyond what anyone imagined.  About the same time, Peck’s association with the fire department spawned the idea of saving a pet’s life with very specialized tools which became The FIDO BAG®.   Peck decided that she would offer the FIDO BAG®s to first responders across the US and invite the community members to support their fire stations and be a community hero!!
