Reaccredited 2018


Our temperatures are down in the single digits, and the wind chill makes it even colder. Protect your pets! Bring them indoors if possible. If they can't be brought in, make sure they have adequate shelter to get out of the wind and have ample bedding to snuggle into. If you can safely arrange it, a small heat source would be welcomed by your furry friend! Our pets also drink more during this cold weather, so make sure they have plenty of clean, fresh water. Keep an eye on it and change it if it freezes.
