COMMISSIONER REVICZKY ADVISES RESIDENTS TO PROTECT

COMPANION ANIMALS FROM SEVERE COLD

  

Department of Agriculture Commissioner Steven K. Reviczky is advising residents to take steps to protect their pets during the severe cold weather forecast for the weekend.

 

“Owners should prepare for their animals’ care during this cold snap as they would prepare for themselves and their families,” Reviczky said.

 

All animals should have access to a safe, warm shelter, and their water supplies should be checked to ensure they have not frozen.  Owners should also ensure their animals have enough food, water and medicine.

 

Residents who may have trouble caring for their animals should contact their local animal control officer.
