Fred Says
Fred Says is a charity that started in response to the relationship between Dr. Rob Garofalo, founder, and his dog Fred who he adopted shortly after surviving cancer and then being diagnosed with HIV. Dr. Garofalo credits Fred as one of the main factors that helped him survive what he considers to be one of his ‘darkest moments.’ Since the start of the charity, many pet owners over the years have connected to this story and shared their own through social media, letters and in person.
