You feel the chill in your fingers and toes, you shiver as you walk from one room to another and – despite the heater being on – you can still feel the cold creeping in from outside.
You may have a cat curled up on your lap or you may be reading this over the snores of your dog, who is sprawled out next to the fireplace.
Now imagine how cold it would be if all of those comforts were stripped away – you are barefoot, in a single layer of clothing, alone and in the dark.
While you are reading this, 92 dogs and 40 cats are spending the night in semi-enclosed kennels. Rain-soaked blankets flap in the wind, threatening to tear free from the clothes pegs anchoring them to the mesh at the front of cages.
A single layer of metal sheeting shields them from the noisy, bone-chilling winds and ice-cold rain.
