Outdoor Dogs Deserve Better 2010

The purpose of this event is to call attention to the hundreds of dogs that are kept outside in these Wisconsin cold winters and to improve their lives.Personally I don't believe in keeping a dog, which is a pack animal, outside 24/ 7, Not only is it harder to stay warm when you are alone, it is very lonely and boring. However keeping dogs outside has been common for many years and it will take many more years before people stop. So in the meantime I would like to try and make an effort to improve their outdoor existence if possible.

But I need your help! I need people to donate straw, their insulated dog house and their time. I need some strong people to be able to lift the donated dog houses I have, and help deliver or pick up,  and to do some repair. Please call me if you can help.

The first event took place  in Antigo, on Wed. Oct.13th, at 6pm in the Antigo country Store.The address was 715 Superior St. I shared information about the proper way to "winterize your outdoor pet", and asked for donated dog houses and outdoor supplies.

The 2nd event took place at the same place, only held outside on Saturday, Oct. 23, starting at 9am to noom. I had a truck full of donated straw, a few donated dog houses and information about the needs of a outdoor dog in winter.

If you know of a dog that looks like he could use a warmer house or has other needs, but don't know how to approach the owner, please call me with your concerns.
