Editor, In just a few months, the cold weather will return to our area. While we can protect ourselves, puppies and adult dogs at Liberty County Animal Control do not have that luxury. They spend their last days in unheated, outdoor kennels on freezing concrete floors. Often, the kennel floors are wet from being cleaned earlier in the day and during the colder months, the concrete doesn’t dry as it does in the summer, making the dogs even more uncomfortable. Their natural body heat is drawn out by the cold concrete. Therefore, not even that protects them - no matter how thick their coats are. Please have a heart and consider donating a Kuranda Dog Bed.
If you visit this Web site: http://kuranda.com/catalog/selectdonee.php you can donate a dog bed and warmth to an animal. Liberty County Animal Control is already registered. All you have to do is go to the pull-down menu on that page, select Georgia and click continue, and then select Liberty County Animal Control and click continue. This will take you to the page where you can choose from three beds. The larger beds are best because they can be shared by two small or medium dogs, giving them an even better chance to stay warm.
Might I also suggest that staff member of Liberty County businesses chip in to donate a dog bed? If everyone chips in a few dollars, one more animal can be kept comfortable. They’re not inexpensive, but these beds are very durable, and just think how wonderful you’ll feel knowing you are keeping an animal warm.
Many of you donate to the ASPCA or the Humane Society of the United States, not knowing where your dollars are going. Not with this program! If you donate a bed to Liberty County Animal Control, you will know that your donation goes to local animals in need. Thank you and God bless you for your kindness.
