What do a couple HOWS gals do on a brisk fall morning? ๐Ÿค” Dig out a gently-used, generously donated, kennel! ๐Ÿ˜Thatโ€™s what! Thank you to the anonymous donor. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป This will be put to good use to free a chained dog. ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿพ

Then, on to check on our buddy, Gucci. We built his enclosure about a month ago and wanted to stop back and make sure everything was working out. He was in his doghouse ๐Ÿก upon arrival, which we love to see! We actually had to coax him out so we could re-stuff it with straw. Gucci is doing fine. We cleaned his pen, which hasnโ€™t appeared to have been cleaned since we were there last ๐Ÿ˜ก and, yes, spoke with his person about the importance of keeping his doghouse full of straw and keeping his area free of feces. ๐Ÿ’ฉ We plan to return soon to make sure the enclosure is being cleaned and to put up some extra tarps to break the wind. Gucci loved our company. We hung out with him for a while. It was heartbreaking ๐Ÿ’” to leave.

While in that area, we placed two cat ๐Ÿˆ shelters (made by Cat Action Team). It seems there is a feral cat problem in Gucciโ€™s neighborhood. We counted 1๏ธโƒฃ4๏ธโƒฃ cats of various ages. They are being fed, but are multiplying. At least we can keep them warm while we are working with an organization to TNR. โœ‚๏ธ

Thatโ€™s what HOWS gals do on a brisk fall day!

Thanks to Theresa Tocco, Jaleen Tocco, Darlene Hinton & Jean Leslie for volunteering today! โค๏ธ

I love your energy! Thank you for what you do ๐Ÿถโค

๐Ÿ’ŸOn this #GivingTuesday2021, with so many worthy organizations in which to give, please consider even a small gift to HOWS Project. Our work with outside dogs is somewhat of a rarity. We focus on animals who are typically overlooked by law enforcement and untouched by many other animal welfare organizations ๐Ÿ•

Bonus - your donation will be doubled as we have a โ€œsecret Santaโ€ matching donations through the end of the year ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ

Happy Giving Tuesday ๐Ÿ™‚

โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ™ŒIt was a cold yet productive day for our Team HOWS 11/27/2021 dynamic duo Melanie Kelley Moreland and Stacey Norris. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ๏ฟผ

We were thankful to see at our first stop (when it was only 30ยฐ outside) that both HOWS clients, Draka and Bella, were inside; their person noted the family has been bringing them inside for the last couple weeks because of the cold weather!๏ฟผ We stuffed their houses with straw for when they do go outside and told their person to give them a hug for us ๐Ÿค—๏ฟผ

๐Ÿ Boss was also inside when we visited. The dog house we brought for him will be used when the weather is nicer. He too is spending the winter days indoors, unless he goes out for a potty break โ„๏ธ Great to hear!

Tonka received a much improved shelter today. This was a tricky one as we had to do quite a bit of bush trimming and lift his very heavy large dog house over the fence into his enclosure๏ฟผ๏ฟผ. Tonkaโ€™s person helped a lot; and he vowed to bring Tonka in at night going forward until things start to warm up again. His goal is to bring him in for good once he moves. ๐Ÿ‘๏ฟผ

We welcomed Jimmy and Sasha to our HOWS family today. โค๏ธโค๏ธ They go in at night, but are out when their daddy is at work.๏ฟผ๏ฟผ We will be bringing them a house big enough to accommodate both of them just as soon as we can. Their person is very grateful.

๐Ÿ™ And we hope to be welcoming the two hounds we visited today to our family soon as well. ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ Their person was not home, so we left a note with a bale of straw. Hope we get a call back! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

It has been getting so cold at night and does not look to be letting up anytime soon. Our 2020 Virginia laws require with little exception that tethered dogs not remain outside when temperatures are 32ยฐ or colder. Please let us know if thereโ€™s anyoneโ€™s dog in *your* neighborhood๏ฟผ who would benefit from meeting us.
