Living outside is hard enough, but in the cold, dark wintertime, it can mean months of total misery.
Sheba had nothing to call home but a flimsy plastic box with an open front and a patch of dirt. She was tied to a tree, day in and day out, with nothing of substance to protect her from the bone-chilling winter weather.
When PETA's dedicated team of fieldworkers first met Sheba on a call for our spay-and-neuter services, we knew that we had to do all that we could to improve her desperate living situation.
Soon after we transported Sheba from her spay appointment, PETA delivered her a new doghouse, a new tangle-free tether, and a toy (her first ever) and gave her some much-needed love and affection, which she desperately craved.
There are few sights as heartwarming as that of a dog who has just received a real doghouse after years of suffering outside. Most dogs immediately go inside and curl up in the straw with a sigh of relief.
I hope that you'll consider becoming a PETA "Angels for Animals" doghouse sponsor right now. (http://bit.ly/uzMPfU) Your generosity will change the life of a neglected "outside dog" like Sheba.
Thank you for helping neglected, forgotten dogs this winter in such a significant way.
