The temperatures are going to start dropping and possibly stay cold for long periods of time. Outside pets and animals need us to take care of them and keep them warm. Little things can be done to keep everyone warm, cozy and safe. A dog house or shelter is very important. A few tips to keeping the doghouse warm is to have it blocked from the North wind, put bedding in the house (hay, blankets, or old towels) and adding a heat lamp. It is also important to check the water supply to make sure it is not frozen solid so that your pets have access to fresh water. Stay warm and Love those pets…Scout.
