We recently partnered with Alaska Rural Veterinary Outreach (ARVO) to improve the lives of outdoor dogs in the village of Togiak. Straw For Dogs supplied the doghouses, straw, and tie-outs, and ARVO covered the cost of shipping. #teamwork #outreach

We would like to send a heartfelt thanks to David Jensen for including us as a suggested nonprofit to support through his Front Porch Project. He is an amazing photographer, and can work his magic with both people and pets! Please consider supporting small businesses like his in these most unusual times.

This post is in both honor of and memory of the formally feral dog Gypsy. She crossed the Rainbow Bridge Friday night, and will be dearly missed by her caretakers. She was the last dog to come into S4D's Refuge Program, and was able to experience nothing but love, kindness, and patience until the end. The picture below is Gypsy (left) flirting with her boyfriend Denali.
RIP Gypsy ❤️

These retired sled dogs are now companion dogs, but are not all house trained yet. The owner needed a warm, dry place for them to go when she leaves, and volunteers for Straw For Dogs were happy to help!
