Keep Outdoor Dogs from Freezing this winter

| December 17, 2022

The NMDOG Statewide FREE STRAW Program is in full swing and FREE STRAW is available at MANY participating locations across the state of New Mexico!!

Complete list of pick-up locations, contact info and hours of availability are posted below.

At NMDOG, we believe ALL Dogs belong inside as part of the Family. Sadly, this is not the reality for 1000s of Dogs across the state and winter is a very difficult time for these pups. Just like people, Dogs are susceptible to frostbite and hypothermia, despite having fur coats. A doghouse is a great start, but a layer of straw insulation can make the difference between life and death. Do you have a doghouse in need of some straw or know someone who does? Use this resource and help a cold Dog survive the winter! #ItTakesAvillage

Donations from those that support our important work for NMs Forgotten Dogs keep this program alive!

Many shelters, AC Depts, Officers, Law Enforcement Depts and County Officials now have FREE STRAW to hand out to those in need. This is a result of the collaborative effort of everyone that is participating and funds generously donated to our efforts. It is our hope to make lifesaving warmth available to as many outdoor Dogs (and other animals) as possible, across the state.

Please SHARE this info and use the resources provided to secure straw for cold dogs in your neighborhood…you could easily save a life Thank you.

The price of a bale of straw has more than DOUBLED since winter 2021 ~ The need for support is greater than ever. Today… $13-$16 = 1 bale of straw = 3 doghouses insulated = 3 dogs that aren’t going to freeze to death.  #GetInvolved!
