Pets & Cold Weather

If it’s too cold for humans, it’s too cold for animals too. Help keep your pets safe this winter with these #BePrepared tips:

  • If you can’t bring them indoors, provide a warm shelter that’s dry and blocks the wind.
  • Ensure food and water is always available (and not frozen).
  • Create a buddy system with a neighbour or friend so they can help keep your animals safe if you are away.
