Hi everyone,
Some of you may and may not know that we are working on helping dogs that are out in the cold! We are collecting dog houses, hay for the dog houses, food, crates  (large and X-large), tie-out cables (to get these dogs off of those heavy tow chains), medium-large size collars, rawhides (to help alleviate boredom of being chained 24/7), even kennels/pens. We do not advocate leaving animals out in the cold at all, but we all know that some people are going to do it anyway and that these animals need help. PLEASE brain-storm where to get some of this! Please consider putting up notices at work, sending out emails to friends/relatives. I even put a note on people's doors that have had dog houses and/or kennels sitting there empty and asked them to donate them. Check out your neighborhood! I know people have crates in garages, etc. that no longer use or need them. Same with dog houses.
I am helping Spay/Neuter KC coordinate this project. We did have a segment on the news the other night. I went to the spay/neuter clinic today and have a list already of people that had come in and need crates, dog houses and hay for the dog houses. I talked to one family that brought their dog in because of the cold, but they are keeping it tied up in the house because it's not house-trained, etc. We gave them a large crate that had been donated and I talked with them about not leaving the dog in there for hours on end, but getting them out to exercise, etc. They also are now signed up to bring their dog in to get neutered in Feb. We had another dog that had been picked up and brought in by a volunteer to get neutered and the owner had said that they needed a crate for this boy because they had been trying to bring him in from the cold. He weighed 95 lbs. and we did not have one large enough for him. As soon as we can get one donated, I will deliver it to them, but we need an X-large! Most of our crate needs are large and X-large crates, plastic or wire!!! I think more people than I thought are trying or want to bring their animal in when the weather is bad, but they need crates and we DO talk to them about house-training, exercise, etc.
Just in the brief time that I was there today, I have several on my list needing items. Obviously,  there is a great need out there! Most of them are pits, of course. One man had a thin, sweet pit-she'd had a litter of puppies not long ago that are now all gone, but at least he brought her in today and she was spayed. He needs a larger crate because she's out-grown the one he has for when he brings her in and he needs hay for the dog house that he does have outside. I will take him some hay, but once again we need another large crate.
The need is great and we want to help these animals! Please let me know if you have/can get/will beg for any of these items. They can be taken to Spay/Neuter KC at 3710 Main on M-F from 8-5. Also on Sat., Jan. 27th from 9-noon.  We also will be needing people with trucks, a trailer, etc. to deliver some of these items when we go out and actually canvas some targeted neighborhoods. On-line donations can be sent by going to: www.snkc.net. Please specify the Winter Assistance Program.
Please help if you can. There are some very cold animals out there in this horrible weather. We can help them. We have people asking for help and we will be canvassing as well. Let me know if you are interested in the canvassing part of this project!
Please forward this email and let others know. The more we can spread the word, the more supplies that we can get, the more animals that we can help!
Thanks so much,
Kate
if you can help with supplies
