Chained Dogs are Freezing! Send them a Valentine!
This is the time of year we all cringe at the thoughts ofdogs left chained outside. Here in PA it will be 7 degrees tomorrow night. Whocan survive that?
One of the ways we take action in the winter months is ourHave a Heart for Chained Dogs campaign, running the week of February 7-14. Inthat campaign we pair up valentines (made by YOU or school children) withaddresses of chained dogs, and we mail them out all over the country.
Here's how you can help:
1. Make Valentines! We need about 15,000 of them...ask yourkid's teacher, make them at home or at scout meetings...or make them with yourfriends. To learn more, click the link.
2. Send addresses. That dog you pass everyday? Please stopand get his/her address. They deserve our voice because they have none of theirown, and by taking action you at least alleviate your stress of seeing them outthere.
3. Send coupons for dog food or treats. We mail them alongwith the valentines as a gesture of goodwill.
4. Donate to the campaign. 15,000 letters takes 15,000stamps! Plus 15,000 envelopes...and 15,000 address labels.
Please take action. The chained dogs are begging for yourhelp. Learn more by visiting: http://www.dogsdeservebetter.org/Valentines2011.htmlThat's a lot of valentines. You may wonder if it will really help these dogs. Well, even if just one dog out of every one hundred dogs is helped, thats 150 dogs who will have better living conditions. It's a start and we have to start somewhere. So I'm in. I don't have the time to make valentines but I can make a few coupons for dog treats and send a small donation. It may not seem like much but a lot of little somethings can add up to something really big! Maybe you can do a little something?
