Keeping pets warm in the cold

With frigid temperatures forecasted for this week, it’s important that you protect your pets from the cold.

If you can, bring your pets indoor when the weather dips below freezing. If you can’t bring your pet inside, make sure they have a place that is protected from the elements and provides warmth.

Outdoor cats will sometimes sleep under the hoods of cars to keep warm. If you have outdoor cats in your area, bang loudly on your car hood before starting the engine so that any cat underneath has the chance to escape.

Never leave a pet alone in the car during cold weather as they can freeze to death inside.

Consider getting short-haired dogs a sweater to wear while outside to help keep them warm.
