St. Louis Pets Left Outside In The Cold, Can Be Confiscated

Only a few hours ago, the City of St. Louis, MO promised that dogs and cats left outside in the cold, will be confiscated and their owners will be charged with animal cruelty, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Temperatures are expected to drop below zero in the area, and Mayor Francis Slay is promising that special teams will not only be canvassing the streets, looking for people who don’t have a warm place to be, but they will also be on the lookout for pets who are left outside. Police Chief Sam Dotson said they would have officers looking for these dogs and cats, whose owners would be charged with animal cruelty.

Stray Rescue of St. Louis is pledging to mobilize volunteers to help out with the City’s efforts, and they’ve been pleading with local dog and cat owners to bring their animals inside, otherwise “they will die,” said Randy Grim, representing the organization at today’s press conference.

If you live in the area and see an animal in need, please call 314-657-1500.
