Winter is here pet and animal safety for the season

In many parts of North America the weather is cold and extra care should be taken to protect your pet. Some cities such as MORGANTOWN, W.Va.  have bylaws to protect animals during cold spells.

The City  is asking pet owners to remain vigilant this winter to ensure their pets’ warmth and safety.

In a press release, the city reminded the public that there is a code to abide by when leaving pets outside in extreme weather.

The good rule of thumb to remember, she said, is that you should take your pets outside and play with them rather than leaving them alone outside. This is a good rule to keep in mind because if you get cold, you can rest assured your pet is also cold, Johnson said.

“It’s just really important for people, pet owners, to use common sense and to be vigilant about the codes and what is legal and what is not,” Johnson said. And back to the common sense, this a family member, so look at it as if you’re the same thing goes for your dog as it would for your child really when it comes to cold weather. A lot of people might say ‘my dog is a breed that loves the snow’ — I’ve not met a dog that really doesn’t love being inside of a home. I really have not, so it’s very important that you pay attention to the code.”
