KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The organization Chain of Hope spent Sunday trying to get some last-minute supplies to pet owners who have dogs or other animals in dangerous situations.

Chain of Hope focuses on alleviating the suffering of abused and neglected animals in Kansas City’s urban core. Sunday, the organization spent the day handing out hay from their truck. The hay can be used to help insulate a dog house, but a spokesperson from the group said the ideal thing to do would be bringing the pet inside.

“They’ve got to get those dogs in tonight and tomorrow night. They're in danger of finding a dead dog in the morning,” said Kate Quigley with Chain of Hope.

Normally, volunteers from Chain of Hope drives around looking for animals in distress, but Sunday they figured it would be more efficient to hand out hay from a single location.

During the summer, the organization spends time looking for and supplying distressed animals with water.
