The Humane Society and SICSA have your perfect ‘nude’ year’s resolution
“Why doesn’t Donald Duck wear pants, but he wears a towel around his waist when he gets out of the shower?” The question has plagued children for years and, well, I don’t know the answer to it. So in keeping with this issue’s “nude” theme, the Dayton City Paper has teamed up with Humane Society of Greater Dayton and The Society for the Improvement of Conditions for Stray Animals (SICSA) to showcase these naked (but furry and lovable) animals available for adoption. All animals deserve a new home and family in 2011. And yes, you can buy them a sweater if you want.
