Too many dogs are facing months of sleet and snow while chained in freezing backyards with only the most decrepit of shelter, if any. Through the generosity of "Angels for Animals" doghouse sponsors (https://secure.peta.org/site/Donation2?df_id=6680&6680.donation=form1&set.custom.Campaign_Code=H11LWAXXXXJ&s_src=CAUSES&s_subsrc=DH2011M4), dogs such as Sheba, Blackout, and Prince can look forward to the shelter of a sturdy doghouse throughout these frigid winter months and for many years to come.
Helping these dogs is the reason why PETA created the "Angels for Animals" program. (https://secure.peta.org/site/Donation2?df_id=6680&6680.donation=form1&set.custom.Campaign_Code=H11LWAXXXXJ&s_src=CAUSES&s_subsrc=DH2011M4)
PETA has delivered more than 4,000 durable, custom-built doghouses—free of charge—to dogs who otherwise would have to endure the bitter wind, ice, and snow of winter or the sweltering heat of summer without any shelter or with little more than a piece of metal or wood propped against a fence. Each doghouse is built to last and filled with straw bedding to help provide a dry place for the dogs to curl up in—the first time some have ever had adequate shelter. The dogs are able to use their body heat (and the straw that we include) to stay warm on the coldest of nights.
"Angels for Animals" sponsors help our fieldworkers do much more than just providing dogs in need with a sturdy new home. They also give them the resources to replace the heavy chains often found on "backyard dogs" with a proper collar and a lightweight tie-out that can't tangle and, if needed, arrange for them to be spayed or neutered. They also allow us to make regular follow-up visits to the dogs we have helped, enabling us to provide them with toys, treats, fresh straw bedding, and some much-needed affection.
Please be an "angel" for a dog in need today! (https://secure.peta.org/site/Donation2?df_id=6680&6680.donation=form1&set.custom.Campaign_Code=H11LWAXXXXJ&s_src=CAUSES&s_subsrc=DH2011M4)
Thank you for all that you are doing for dogs and all animals this holiday season.
