Excerpted from the website description:
- This Web site is devoted to helping dog lovers find their lost pets, locate the owners of found pets, and find homes for orphaned pets. FindFido is a free service.
FindFido.com was founded in 1998 by Daniel Fields, a computer software developer and Linda Fields, a Peabody-winning broadcast journalist. The idea was to use the then-emerging World Wide Web to help dogs in need of homes. The news articles on the site were written by Linda Fields and also by contributing veterinarians. It is available free of charge to users listing lost, found or adoptable dogs anywhere in the U.S., Great Britain, Canada and Australia.
