Winter Weather and Pet Care in Montgomery County, Maryland

 

Montgomery County, Maryland authorities are reminding residents not to leave pets tied up and unattended outside during severe winter weather conditions. Dog owners face a $500 fine for violating the anti-animal cruelty ordinance.

Montgomery County Animal Services Division officers will enforce a county regulation that says, “a person must not tether a dog under circumstances that endanger its health, safety, or well-being including: unattended tethering of the dog during a weather emergency.”

Enforcement of the regulation goes into effect during periods of extreme cold, wind or heavy snow, which can all be harmful to dogs and other animals.

Animal Services officials remind residents to be particularly careful with all pets during the blasts of cold weather. The best advice during periods of extreme weather conditions is to bring pets indoors. Even animals that are used to living outdoors can be susceptible to the dangers of cold weather. Livestock animals should have a place to get out of the wind and dry bedding should be provided to protect them from frostbite.

If you see an animal left outside that appears to be in danger, call the Animal Services Division immediately at 301-279-8000.

Good morning Roy. Our pets deserve out attention and protection. You should see the array of booties used here in downtown Chicago to protect paws! Enjoy your day!

Good morning Roy. This is a really important post. However my view is that people who don't know this shouldn't own pets. Happy New Year to you and Dolores.

It's sad that we have to remind people to take care of their furry friends. But I am SO glad that you take the time to do it! If just ONE animal is thought of during the cold this year, it was more than worth your time. Thank you!

:( Sad that we have to remind people to take care of their pets. Our big spoiled guy will be laying in front of the woodstove for the next few days. We've got another snow episode coming in tonight. Can't wait. :)

It's important to remember that our fur buddies aren't as hardy as we might think when it comes to extreme weather!

I am one overly protective parent when it comes to my pets, so any abuse really gets me riled up. They are dependent upon us and give so much love.
