Bring Pets Inside - Cold Weather Tips for Dogs & Cats

With the freezing weather across many parts of the nation, please remind friends and neighbors to bring pets inside! Many people falsely believe that it’s “ok” for big dogs to be outside and that only small dogs need to be indoors. Having a doghouse is not sufficient protection for freezing weather. While we are in Southern CA it has been quite chilly dipping down into the 30s. Sadly someone was mentioning to me how her daughter was “pet sitting” a family member’s dog bringing him food once a day while the poor old dog was left outside because the family member was away. Very upsetting! Most likely this happens in much colder places and it is heartbreaking

💔 Please keep an eye out for neighboring dogs and if you see a pet in need, please report it
