Fido Factor and The San Francisco SPCA
Fido Factor is all about having fun checking out new dog friendly places with your pooch, but we
are also about supporting homeless animals and keeping your dog safe.
- Reviews for a cause - how Fido Factor supports homeless animals
Fido Factor wouldn't exist without our home city San Francisco. The passionate
dog owners of the City by the Bay are the inspiration behind this site. Inspired
ourselves, Fido Factor has made giving back to the community a top priority.
Each time one of our members adds or reviews a location in San Francisco, Fido
Factor will make a donation out of our own pocket to The San Francisco SPCA to
shelter, care, and place homeless dogs in new homes.
- Donations explained - three options, three ways to win!
