Bring Some Food
While we will have a few restaurant donations on hand, we ask that dog
owners help out by bringing something as well. Those whose dogs have
names beginning with the letters A through G might bring an appetizer,
salad or bread. If your dog’s name begins with an H through P,
bring a small entrée. For letters Q through Z, a dessert would be
welcome. FIDO will provide beverages, paper goods, plastic ware,
trash bags, water and biscuits for the dogs.
Games & Contests
Our pot-luck affair will also feature the FIDO Mid-Summer Games in
which canine contestants vie to see who can catch the most dog
biscuits; gives the most licks per minute; biggest/smallest foot/ears;
plus stupid dog tricks. Agility equipment will be on hand for
additional fun. We will have a permit designated off-leash area.
Who’s FIDO In Prospect Park?
FIDO in Prospect Park is dedicated to enhancing opportunities for
off-leash activity as well as responsible supervision of dogs both in
and outside the park. To this end, FIDO has sponsored lectures
and events as well as donated funds to the Prospect Park Alliance for
new trashcans, the Dog Beach, dog-friendly water fountains, and even a
bench and tree in memory of dogs who have romped through the Park’s
meadows. FIDO’s aim is to educate the dog owning community, the
general public as well as elected and appointed officials about

FIDO Receives the Lovgren Award &
"Volunteer Award" in recognition of their
Commitment to the Park slope Community
"Each year since 1979, the Park Slope
Civic Council has honored two people or
organizations for their outstanding
service to the community. The awards – one
for a local volunteer, the other for
professional service – are named for
George Lovgren, the Park Slope activist
who in the 1960s worked tirelessly to save
the Union Street firehouse (today, Squad
1) from closure. The awards epitomize the
Civic Council's philosophy – that it's the
people who care about their community that
have made Park Slope a great place to
We believe your work on behalf of dog
owners, Prospect Park visitors and the
community at large makes FIDO very well
deserving of this award, and we would be
honored to present this award in person
at our June Trustees' Meeting taking
place on Thursday, June 8th at the Old
Stone House in Washington Park at 7pm."
