An Oklahoma City couple was in a predicament. Dana Gabriel and her husband were going to have to stop getting their mail delivered to their house because their dog kept chasing away the mailman.  

A flyer from the Neighbor Alliance changed that, connecting her with resources for a new fence in her backyard. 

Before Gabriel ever reached out, the Metro Park neighborhood had reached out to the organization, hoping they could help make the area safer for both residents and their pets. 

After months of pulling together the materials, the fence is finally set to be built. 

Volunteers from around the country showed up Wednesday to build the fence in Gabriel’s backyard. 

"It's a fabulous program that not only helps families that have pets who need to keep them safe, but it's raising their property values and safety," said Georgie Rasco of the Neighborhood Alliance. 

Gabriel's new fence should be completed by Thursday, and she hopes the change will make it so the post office can deliver to her door again.
