Extreme weather can be deadly to pets including those subjected to living on chains. Chained dogs are at extreme risk of hypothermia, frostbite, suffering, and death. Oklahoma state law requires owners to provide food, water, shelter, and veterinary care to prevent suffering. OAA and its Unchain OK volunteers are collecting donated doghouses and delivering them to animals in need. Many thanks to the media for sharing the story about the need.
Does your dog have shelter? Shelter is required by Oklahoma state law; failure to provide shelter is a felony violation. Providing shelter against the elements and temperatures is even more critical during extreme weather.
Many thanks to the Tulsa World for featuring OAA and our Unchain OK program. We are able to help animals in need because of people who contact us, volunteer with us, and donate. Thank you Tulsa World!
