ST. LOUIS (AP) -- An animal humane group has donated straw bedding for dogs that must remain outdoors this winter.

St. Louis city and county-run shelters, as well as Franklin County Humane Society, Jefferson County Animal Control, St. Charles Humane Services, and St. Clair County, Illinois, Animal Services are participating.

The group's Web site has details on the Free Straw for Warm Paws program, and information on donating dog houses.
