Animal Care & Control

Cold Weather tips for Pets

 

 

City of Fort Wayne - Animal Care & Control is offering free straw to any Allen County resident in need of animal bedding during the upcoming cold days of winter.  Pet owners are urged to continually monitor the needs of pets whenever the animals are outdoors.  The straw is being offered through private donation to be used for bedding and to keep the ground surrounding a doghouse mud free.

Keep cats inside. Cats are in danger of freezing and suffering frostbite or hypothermia when left outside. Cats may seek warmth under the hoods of cars and be injured by the fan belt when the car engine is started. If there are outdoor cats in your area, bang on the car hood before starting the engine to give the cat a chance to escape. Check out options for providing shelter to outdoor cats in your area.
