Let’s make sure we protect our companion animals from harsh weather conditions. Just because your dog has a doghouse doesn’t mean it is safe from the freezing temperatures.
People have the ability to find shelter if they want it. Animals that are confined to a yard or, worse yet, kept on a chain or in a cage, have no options but to suffer terribly. Please show compassion and bring your pet inside the house when it dips below 32 degrees. If your garage is not heated, then this won’t be much relief.
A wooden pallet will get your pet off the cold, concrete floor, and a heated, electric dog bed can be purchased at a pet supply store or ordered online. Extra food and water that is not frozen are essential.
In the summer, it is critical to provide a cool, preferably air-conditioned, area for pets when it gets above 90 degrees. A concrete garage floor and an electric fan can provide some relief, but your pet will still need lots of cold, fresh water.
Bring ’em in. When it’s too hot or cold for you, it’s too hot or cold for your pets.
