If you have a dog, you probably know how frightened our canine companions get during thunderstorms – and how quickly they overheat on scorching summer days. But “outdoor” dogs, who have all the same feelings as the dogs who live in our homes with us, are far more vulnerable to extreme weather. As the heat of August intensifies, neglected backyard dogs – who are stuck on a chain somewhere and basically forgotten – face soaring temperatures, the scorching sun, energy-sapping humidity, and the wind and pounding rains of frightening and powerful summer thunderstorms.
The fact is, some people cannot afford to take proper care of their dogs and cats, while others have no clue how to or just plain don’t care if the dog lives or dies.
That’s why PETA’s “Angels for Animals” program is so wonderful – and so very important.
With your help, PETA can build and deliver hundreds of sturdy, straw-filled doghouses for these lonely dogs whose guardians won’t relinquish them or let them inside. Our doghouses are made to last, so your sponsorship today will provide a dog with shelter from snow, wind, rain, and summer heat for years to come.
