Cold weather means keep pets in PDF Print
Thursday, 06 December 2007 21:27

Avery County Humane Society director Alice Sudderth hopes the cold will inspire you to keep your pets inside.

If you do have outdoor animals, however- there a few steps you need to take to keep your furry friends healthy.


Always leave out plenty of water. Pets actually need more water on cold winter days than under normal conditions.


Have some kind of shelter outside to protect your pet from cold winter winds.


Sudderth says communities need to look out for dogs and cats.


If you see a neglected pet, call the Humane Society. State law requires outdoor pets have shelter, food and water accessible at all times, Sudderth says.
