Project Outside Dog & Kitty (POD)

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Our mission is to improve the lives of needy dogs and cats on the Shore.

We offer assistance in several areas including:


"Winter Dog"

Provides straw and/or houses to needy dogs.

"Shady Dog"

Assist dogs in need with the purchase, delivery and set up of kennel covers for shade.

"Clip Me"

Provides a grooming for severely overgrown dogs.


"Warm Kitty"

Provides warm cat houses.



If you need assistance or are interested in how you can help, please contact us.

Assistance/services are limited and are evaluated on a case by case basis.





Why straw?  Straw is hollow and thus more insulating than hay or pine needles.

Blankets, towels, rugs, dog beds, etc. get damp and only make your dog colder.


How to stuff your dog house -

Stuff up the back, sides, and bottom (like a bird nest).

Be sure your dog house is off the ground (we also have free pallets).

Please consider contributing to our straw campaign and help a dog keep warm this winter!

If you have a dog house or kennel that you no longer use, we can put it to good use and help a dog in need.

We are also in of coolers and totes (they make wonderful kitty houses)
