Project Outside Dog & Kitty's mission is to provide straw and/or houses for outside dogs and cats that are in need on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.


If you need straw and / or a house - please contact us!

If your neighbor, friend, or family member is in need - please tell them about us!


We are always in need of dog houses, crates, and kennels.

Please consider donating if you have one that you no longer need.

We will put it to good use and help a dog in need.

Please contact us if you can donate or volunteer!!



We offer straw - stuffed kitty houses

Why straw?  Straw is hollow and thus more insulating than hay or pine needles.

Blankets, towels, rugs, dog beds, etc. get damp and only make your dog colder.


How to stuff your dog house -

Stuff up the back, sides, and bottom (like a bird nest).

Be sure your dog house is off the ground (we also have free pallets).

Please consider contributing to our straw campaign and help a dog keep warm this winter!

If you have a dog house or kennel that you no longer use, we can put it to good use and help a dog in need.

We are also in of coolers and totes (they make wonderful kitty houses)
