If you think it's too cold to be outside for more than a few minutes, imagine how your pet feels being left in the yard all day. The Humane Society of Richland County urges dog and cat owners to keep them warm, and alive. Humane Agent Missy Houghton says even furry pets can get frostbite and hypothermia in a short time in weather like this. If they must be left outside, provide them with adequate shelter in a dog house with hay or wood chips to lie on, and food and water. Otherwise, bring them inside. The Humane Society has received calls from neighbors of pet owners who are leaving their animals outside, and will investigate each report. If your pet is removed from your property and taken to the shelter, you will likely be given a summons to appear in court on an animal cruelty charge.
