SPCA: Keep Pets Indoors During Winter Storm

The Humane Society and SPCA of Hancock County is reminding people to look out for their pets during this winter storm that’ll include dangerously low wind chills.

The Humane Society’s Natalie Reffitt says her best advice to pet parents is to keep their pets inside during the storm and only let them out, with supervision, to go to the restroom and bring them in immediately when they finish.



She’s also advising people with outside pets to bring them in as well, even if it’s only into a garage or spare room.

If you can’t bring in outdoor pets, make sure they have shelter and insulation, such as straw for bedding.

She says pets must always have access to fresh, clean water and people need to check it to make sure it’s not frozen.

This winter storm is expected to contain 55 mph wind gusts and wind chills of 30 below.
