Hot weather is upon us and with the rise in temperatures comes much suffering for animals.
Dogs are descendants of the wolf, an animal who spends his days in the cool forests or in rock shelters. Just as the wolf seeks shelter from the sun, so also dogs need shade. Rather than providing shade, a doghouse sitting in the sun quickly becomes an oven. Deprived of shade a dog can die a slow and painful death from heat stroke. Dog houses need to be placed under a large tree or a side porch needs to be built on the house to provide shade.
