PETA's hometown of Norfolk, Virginia, has been slammed by an unusually severe snowstorm, but as difficult as it is for us humans to deal with freezing conditions, it's much worse for dogs who are left outside. Now some of those dogs in the South Bend, Indiana, area—where harsh winter weather is more common—will be able to endure the worst of the season more easily, thanks to the Michiana Animal Alliance Group (MAAG).
Inspired by a PETA program, MAAG is providing needy dogs with custom-built doghouses and warm, dry straw this winter. Keep up the great work, MAAG!
PETA is working toward the day when all dogs have guardians who take them inside and never chain them—and we need your help to make that happen—but until then, we can at least make these animals' lives as comfortable as possible. Support PETA's doghouse program and make a cold animal's life a lot warmer.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
