If you are cold outside, then your animals are too. Please bring them inside if you can! Different animals have different cold tolerances that vary depending on their coat, body fat, and health. Cold weather can effect and worsen medical conditions and arthritis. But we all understand, once it gets to a freezing level, cold is cold! If you can’t bring them inside, there are safe options such as garages, sheds, any protection helps if you are not able to bring them inside. Outside animals need a place they can get away from the wind, rain, snow, and cold weather. Dog/cat houses and plenty of bedding is needed.
