"We are hoping that those who can will bring in their dogs during the extreme cold," said Sheriff Tim Donnellon in a statement. "For those who can't, we are offering free straw to help insulate the dog houses."
The straw is being donated by Keegan Hay Company in Emmett.
Those interested in the free straw just have to stop by animal control during business hours.
The office is open from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and from 11:30 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Tuesdays. Animal control is located at 3378 Griswold Road in Port Huron Township.
