Exposure to the Cold
See a dog out in the cold without proper
shelter? Contact local law enforcement.
Dogs left in extreme temperatures,
especially without food or shelter, are at
risk of hypothermia, frostbite, and death.
Cats get cold too.
If your neighborhood plays host to a feral
cat community you can easily repurpose
foam cooler bins to create safe, insulated
Daily walks in the cold can harm your
dog’s paws. Keep them moisturized to
protect against salt and chemical agents.
Ditch the Bath
Reduce bathing frequency during cold spells. Drying can take too long and
washing too often can deplete essential oils to increase dry, flaky skin.
