With temperatures dropping and snow accumulating, the Humane Society of Greater Dayton wants to remind the public that if it’s too cold for you to be outside then it’s too cold for your pets also.
Animals should stay inside as much as possible during winter months to protect them from the cold, the Humane Society said in a release. If they must stay outside, they need proper shelter.
If you’ve witnessed any animal that’s been outside for extended hours and is not protected, call the Humane Society’s cruelty/neglect hotline at 855-738-7911. For dogs left outside, you can also call the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center at 937-898-4457.
