Shelter Pets In The Cold 01/08/2021

LAFAYETTE ANIMAL SHELTER AND CARE CLINIC IS URGING PET OWNERS TO BRING THEIR FURRY FRIENDS INSIDE DURING THE COLD WEATHER. JUST LIKE HUMANS, PETS ARE VULNERABLE TO FROSTBITE AND HYPOTHERMIA. AND A REMINDER, CARS ARE ONE OF MANY HAZARDS TO SMALL ANIMALS. WARM ENGINES IN PARKED CARS ATTRACT CATS AND SMALL WILDLIFE. THEY MAY CRAWL UP UNDER THE HOOD TO KEEP WARM. TO AVOID INJURING ANY HIDDEN ANIMALS, BANG ON YOUR CAR'S HOOD TO SCARE THEM AWAY BEFORE STARTING YOUR ENGINE.
