Sun Tire / Pets' shelter

Sun Tire

It is difficult for abandoned stray pets to find a warm house to stay in winter. They may hide into caves which are quite cold, or stay under cars to warm themselves with heat distributed from engines. Besides, another social problem is discarded tires that can cause serious environmental pollutions.
Sun Tire provides a warm house for stray pets. It can be fixed under a tree or a streetlight. It contains a discarded tire with a hole and an easy-made solar warming cover. The cover is mainly made up of solar panels on the top and warming blocks inside. With Sun Tire, the stray pets can spend a warm winter!
