SAGINAW, Mich. -- Three Saginaw County Animal Control officers are getting worldwide attention for an event raising awareness to animals left in the cold.

They will sleep outside in dog houses.

Officers Tricia Barnes, Joaquin Guerreo and Anthony Trevino will stay the night in doghouses in frigid temperatures.

They will raise awareness to animals left in the cold.

Local students will also check their vitals and do other tests to see how they do in the cold and the impacts being outside had on people and animals.

Little Chief, a German Shepherd training to become a Saginaw County Animal Control Officer will also participate.

The event starts Friday, Jan. 12 at 6 p.m. at Apple Mountain in Saginaw County.
