On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, the Phillipsburg Fire Department received FIDO BAGS from Janeen Wallgren, through a donation from Lynn Wallgren memorial funds.

The Fetch Foundation’s FIDO BAG Program supplies firefighters with lifesaving tools to administer medical attention to your communities pets at the point of rescue.

“In cases such as fire or automobile accidents etc., firefighters need special tools on their trucks to save your four legged friends life just as they do for you,” states Marie Peck, founder of The Fetch Foundation. “Now first responders will have the tools to save all family members.”

“There is no doubt in my mind these firefighters will utilize this equipment and training. The community, both human AND animal, will thank them for it with an out-pouring of support and gratitude,” comments Peck. “It is especially gratifying to see equipment go to first responders that seek us out and understand the value the FIDO BAG program brings to the community they serve every day.”

The Fetch Foundation is a 501c3 organization. This unique nonprofit charity is dedicated to serve our community while saving you and your pets. The Fetch Foundation’s vision is have a FIDO BAG on every fire truck in the country starting in Phillipsburg and to provide rescue dogs an opportunity to be heroes in our community by rehoming and training for both K9 Search and Rescue teams as well as Military Veterans with PTSD.
