About Daisy the Dog

True Friends Memorial

A sweet pit bull named Daisy froze to death in the frigid January temperatures in Holiday Island, Arkansas, when the chain she was attached to prevented her from reaching any shelter. The local humane society is requesting that cruelty charges be filed against Daisy's owner, and in an effort to prevent more tragedies like this one, PETA has sent information on safeguarding animals during winter weather to local media outlets.

Sadly, Daisy isn't the first dog to freeze to death—and she likely won't be the last. Fur coats—especially short ones like pit bulls'—don't prevent dogs and other animals from suffering from frostbite and exposure. Animals can also become dehydrated when water sources freeze. Young, old, small, and short-haired dogs like pit bulls, beagles, Dobermans, and Rottweilers are especially at risk.

Please—if you see any dog left outside without shelter, call the authorities right away. Your call could spare a dog a lingering, painful, and lonely death like Daisy's.

Remembering Daisy

To honor the loss of Daisy, memorial contributions will benefit PETA. Any gift that you are able to make is greatly appreciated.
