On Monday (1/6/14), temperatures are expected to plummet to dangerously low levels. Pets cannot remain outside in that weather. The Global Conservation Group urges everyone to take measures to ensure their pets and local strays have adequate shelter to protect them against the elements.
Some animals may crawl inside car engines to keep warm, it is advised that you tap your car hood to scare the animals out before starting your vehicle.
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, people should never leave their pet alone in a car, which can act as a refrigerator in the winter and cause the animal to freeze to death.
Director of the Global Conservation Group's Cruelty Investigation Department, Lisa Love states “We will have our Animal Emergency Response Teams in Milwaukee, Watertown and Madison all day and night Monday responding to urgent calls, assisting law enforcement and working with other animal welfare organizations to ensure the proper care of companion animals."
If you suspect a pet has been outside for too long, or spot a wild animal in need of assistance, please call 911. If the police are unresponsive, call our National 24/7 Animal Emergency Hotline at 888-959-5403.
