Michiana man helping to keep pets warm


When it's this cold out you have to keep yourself and your pets warm.  A Michiana man wants to help you do that free of charge.

Bill Sykes put out banners at the corner of Cleveland and Juniper in South Bend on Tuesday. They remind you to bring your pets inside when it's this cold out.

He's not just spreading a message. He's also giving free straw to anyone who needs it. The straw goes inside dog houses or cat shelters to keep the animals warm.

Sykes says he does this because he feels sorry for the pets.

"I have the time, I've got the resources and it's my way of giving back and it's my way of giving those that don't have a voice giving them a voice," said Sykes.

Sykes says anyone who needs straw for their pets should call him at 574-329-4900.
