The Michigan Humane Society is giving out free straw for pets at the MHS Detroit Center for Animal Care, located at 7401 Chrysler Drive.

Straw can be picked up any time during adoption center hours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays.

While the Local 4 crews were out in the cold, they said it only took about two minutes for their fingers and toes to start feeling very cold, after four minutes exposed skin, like faces became red.
