Cold Weather Pet Safety

Winter weather has arrived! The American Veterinary Medical Association has issued the following advisory:

Like people, cats and dogs are susceptible to frostbite and hypothermia and should be kept inside. Longer haired and thick-coated breeds, such as Huskies and other dogs bred for colder climates, are more tolerant of cold weather; but no pet should be left outside for long periods of time in below freezing temperatures.

Please help us continue to enact humane legislation for Maryland’s animals by signing up for our Action Alerts and donating to Maryland Votes for Animals today!
