It’s pretty darn cold out right now. I don’t even like going outside in the winter unless it’s absolutely necessary.
However, for dogs and some cats, it’s a daily necessity. Winter may not feel harsh for humans that have expensive winter coats and warm homes and offices, but we should take special precaution for our furry friends as well to make sure they are safe and warm.
For example, in my neighbourhood, almost every dog I see on the street is wearing winter boots. Serious. Even the big dogs! You wouldn’t want to walk around on the snow without warm boots, would you?
The ASPCA made these super cute PSAs to educate everyone on what we can do to help make winter more bearable. These are all super easy, so please remember them if you have pets in your life that venture outdoors at all!
Also, let’s not forget, you see an animal outside without shelter that needs help, call your local rescue organization right away.
