Some Michigan Humane Society staffers will be spending the night in doghouses as part of an effort to raise awareness about the dangers of leaving pets outside in freezing temperatures.

Members of the state Humane Society's cruelty investigation department and emergency rescue teams will be sleeping outside in the doghouses in Detroit for eight hours beginning Tuesday night and ending Wednesday morning.

The MHS cruelty investigation and rescue department says it responds to thousands of calls each year about animals that have been abused or neglected or are sick or injured.

Local 4 News Today will join the Michigan Humane Society Wednesday morning to report on how their experiment went.
