Hello! I am wondering what you would do with this situation. We moved into our home about 7 months ago. The people behind us keep a dog outside. They seem to be without much money. I am concerned because it has fallen rather cold where we live and I don’t think the dog has any bedding in its house. I went today and purchased some straw to give them. I have never really spoken to them, but I would feel better if I knew the dog has some warmth this winter. Should I just take it over & leave by the doghouse? Should I knock on the door and say I wanted to pass it on to them for their dog? I would hate to see it wasted (used for decoration, sit outside all winter, etc). I don’t care honestly if they are offended…I would rather the dog be warm than worry about someone being upset with me. How would you go about this? Thanks!

You could try leaving an anonymous letter with it voicing your concerns and leaving the hay for them?
Another suggestion would be to call your local Humaine society to investigate whether they are providing adequate housing(shelter), food, water for their dog.
