Our mission is to steward and sustain the 150-acre Dog Mountain property in Vermont as a unique national treasure that honors the healing power of “dogs, nature, love, and art,” and to preserve and celebrate the important artistic contributions of Dog Mountain’s iconic creator, Stephen Huneck.

Friends of Dog Mountain (FODM) is a nonprofit organization established in the spring of 2015 by friends and family of the late American artists Stephen & Gwen Huneck.

We believe the 150-acre property known as Dog Mountain deserves to be restored and stewarded as an historic, cultural, and artistic treasure of national importance. Stephen Huneck considered the entirety of Dog Mountain—the ponds, trails, wildflower meadows, vistas, Dog Chapel, and other features—to be his ultimate artistic achievement.

We aim to fulfill the Hunecks' vision of creating a place of heartfelt experience and deep healing through nature, love, art, and pets. As an internationally recognized and celebrated destination attracting tens of thousands of visits annually, we appreciate that Dog Mountain is a uniquely compelling destination for dog lovers and their families seeking to celebrate and honor their profound relationships and shared lives together.

We believe the Hunecks' joyous artistic creations are important contributions to American Folk Art. We seek to preserve and curate Stephen’s woodcut prints, sculptures, furniture, and other inspired creations—such as the Dog Chapel—for future generations to enjoy.

We understand and appreciate that Dog Mountain is a valued economic and community partner contributing to the health and vitality of the region. We seek to collaborate with local municipalities, businesses, and other area nonprofits to develop Dog Mountain and our programmatic offerings in order to benefit the local communities and economies of St. Johnsbury and the Northeast Kingdom of VT.
