After the long winter and cold blast last year, 45th Parallel Pets is proud to be sponsoring the 2nd Annual Straw for Warmth Project in Leelanau County along with Hillside Feed & Supply and Tails-A-Wag’n Pet Services! This event is designed to provide low income families and their companion animals with one bale of straw free of charge. It is based on a first come, first serve basis. It is designed to help animals during the 2014-2015 winter season.
Why straw? It has proved that the presence of straw inside and outside the dog house perimeter provides much needed warmth, comfort, and security for domestic pets. Straw is also available for other companion animals kept outdoors for the winter; one bale per low-income family. Essential care of outdoor animals involves food, water, and warmth. It isn’t just dogs – it’s dogs, cats, or any critter that’s living outdoors on the small animal scale.
You can drop off or pick up straw any time at Hillside Feed and Supply in Suttons Bay throughout the 2014/2015 winter. They will take and give away donations at any time for anyone in need of straw, and if you would like to give monetary donations they will use it to purchase straw. They are located at 3040 S. Center Highway, Suttons Bay, MI 49682.
