The weather expected for Aurora on Thursday is EXTREMELY cold. Please understand this is too cold for pets to be outside for longer than a few minutes. It is very important to keep your pets inside.
When the weather drops below freezing, a poorly insulated shelter may not provide the warmth needed to keep a pet safe. Being exposed to harsh weather conditions for an extended period of time can cause hypothermia, frostbite or even death. Further, water available to them is likely to freeze. Being neglectful to a pet's needs can result in a cruelty charge, a hefty fine and in some cases confiscation of the animal.
If you decide to walk your dog, ideally this should be done midday when it is typically the warmest. Walks should be short to limit their exposure to the cold. Dogs with shorter fur coats, smaller dogs and senior pets can easily feel the effects of the cold. Providing your dog with a coat, sweater or booties can be hugely beneficial in keeping them warm. Booties can also protect their paws from harsh chemicals used for deicing. Please consider using pet safe salt for snow melt.
If you believe a pet is being mistreated, please contact our Animal Protection Officers at 303.326.8288, option 6.
