Caring for Pets in the Cold

Posted: Updated:

Your pet can be your best friend, and animal control wardens want to remind you not to leave them out in the cold.

They have not had too many calls so far this year.

A good thing because cats and dogs can easily get frostbite on their ears, noses and tails.

After only a few minutes outside, one dog at the impound started lifting his feet, indicating that his paws were cold.

"If you're cold when you're outside, your pets are going to be cold, that's the best rule of thumb--your short hair dogs are going to get cold really fast, they're going to freeze their ears and their tail and their feet, your long hair dogs can withstand some temperatures as long as they have a shelter to get out of so they can stay warm." says Missy Hilsendeger, Animal Control Warden.

Every week we try and find a loving home for our pet of the week.

This week we have a female pitbull named Juice.

Juice is around two years old and makes her presence known.

You can hear her grunting and snorting pretty easily, but don't be fooled, she is very friendly.

She is also strong so Juice could use an owner who has experience with pitbulls.

To see Juice or any of the cats and dogs that are free for adoption, the Bismarck/Mandan Animal Impound is open Saturday and Sunday 1-3, or you can call and set up an appointment.
