“The number of animals who freeze to death each winter on a chain or in a barren doghouse is tragic, and these deaths are utterly preventable,” said PETA Vice President Colleen O’Brien in a press release. “PETA’s ads urge people to take dogs indoors, where they’re safe and warm, and not to abandon them outdoors to fend for themselves through Illinois’ bitter winters.”
