We're not the only ones this winter storm has taken by surprise in West Michigan.  Dogs haven't had a chance to fully grow their winter coats.

After receiving 2 feet of snow with record low temps it breaks my heart to think of dogs without proper shelter left out in this weather.

This is why we have an awesome program called "Cold Noses Warm Hearts."  Katie Timber from the SPCA of Southwest Michigan wanted to pass along a very important message,

Outdoor dogs should have access to water that is not frozen and shelter.  If you know of a dog that may be in danger during this winter weather, the SPCA has dog houses and can help.

You can reach out to Katie Timber directly to make sure a cold dog in your neighborhood gets the shelter it needs Katie@spcaswmich.org.

Another way to keep dogs warm is below.
