The Prince George’s County Animal Shelter reminds all pet lovers that cold weather isn’t hard on just people; it’s hard on pets as well.

Here are a few tips to give your pets the extra care they need during the cold winter months:

If your dog stays outdoors in cold weather, the law requires you to provide:

-  Dog house of proper size that is dry, draft free and raised off the ground;
   wind flap that is attached to the doghouse to keep cold air out and warm air in; 
-  Bedding that is non-absorbent such as straw or wood shavings to help keep the
   dog warm; and 
-  Drinking water that is not frozen and is in a container secured to prevent tipping.

Some other suggestions for winterizing your pet include:

Hundreds of pet lovers give shelter animals a second chance

 Christmas came early to hundreds of pets at the Prince George’s County Animal Services Facility due to the success of the “500 Paws for a Claus” pet adoption event held during the month of December.  The event was designed to place shelter animals into loving, forever homes and provided pet lovers half off regular fees for any animal adopted throughout the month.

“We are happy to report that we were able to find permanent, loving homes for 247 animals and currently have an additional 85 applications pending approval for adoption, “ said Associate Director Rodney Taylor. “Thank you to those who took advantage of the opportunity to visit the shelter during this event to meet and adopt a new best friend.”
