This night is supposed to drop to 15 degrees in Greene County. z
Please check out the videos below for ideas to help animals make it through.
It is important to watch them all!
It is time to get your outdoor pets and animals snugged in so they don't freeze in their sleep.
I am NOT a proponent of plastic barrels for dogs. There is absolutely no insulation available in that barrel. If you don't believe me, you hop in a barrel and spend the night. Hey! Opportunity! Do this tonight!
All enclosures need to have a good deal of straw inside so that the dog can create a "nest" to snug into.
Even with this, short haired dogs most likely won't be able to generate enough heat in their space to be comfortable.
Do not elevate the enclosure unless you can do something for insulation underneath. Wind whistling through below the floor is cold!
Rescue persons build cat enclosures out of tubs.
Animals in cold weather require additional calories, so please double feed them, or even triple feed them so they can build a little fat storehouse. People do every winter. We gain weight to help insulate us.
Animals are no different!
Duke has been the reason for the season all along. In 1992, we rescued a darling puppy from a barn situation who grew up to be the greatest trial and love of our lives.
