Winter Pet Care

With the colder weather, it’s important to think about our four-legged friends. Ice melt can hurt your pet’s paws, so be sure to wash their feet when they’ve been exposed. Watch out for antifreeze as this poison will taste sweet to animals and is fatal if not treated immediately. Under city ordinance, animals cannot be tethered outside between 10pm-6am, for more than 30 minutes without adequate food, water and shelter. Animals cannot be tethered if the temperature is below 32 degrees Fahrenheit.
Don't Let Your Guard Down

Winter weather has settled into the area and most of us have gotten seasoned to the cold. However, admit it, most of us have run an errand or gone to work without wearing the dreaded winter coat. We have toughened up long enough to get back and forth and have let our guard down. The same can be said for the day trip to Kansas City or maybe your visit to some out-of-town friends. Did you bring the needed items if you were to become stranded? Keep your guard up by bringing your coat and keeping the fuel tank full in your vehicle. Stow away some snacks and water under the seat. Keep a blanket in your car to stay warm if necessary. Limit use of your cell phone to ensure it is fully charged. Stay informed before heading out by checking the  National Weather Service forecast   MoDOT's traveler map and Evergy’s power outage map.  Stay safe this season and keep your guard up!
