An Oklahoma group wants to make sure that pets aren’t left to fend for themselves outdoors in the freezing temperatures.
Members of the group ‘Unchain Oklahoma’
contacted FOX23 about their effort to collect dog houses for animals in need. FOX23 went along with one of the member, Patti Kuck, as she donated the dog shelters to area homes. She said when the temperature dropped the group kicked in to collect straw and dog houses for pet owners.
“In many cases that we find it’s not necessarily that someone is being cruel it is often that they don’t have the funds to buy a dog house,” said Kuck.
Kuck told FOX23 that the group delivered 20 doghouses in the past few days but they need additional help.
“We need recycled dog houses, we need straw and we also need volunteers to help us deliver the items,” said Kuck.
Members of Unchain Oklahoma are now working to collect and distribute the items so that the animals will have a shelter against elements before the third wave of wintery weather hits the area.
“In many cases animals can suffer from hypothermia even if they are left outside for a short period of time.
