Tips for Keeping Dogs Safe in the Winter Cold

Since moving to Colorado we’ve seen quite the sway in temps. It was 70, yes 70, last week and this week…well it’s not 70 let’s just say that.

The ASPCA has created an animated infographic highlighting tips to help keep animals safe when the temperatures drop and asked me to share!

So check out these graphics that have vital information on how to help dogs that may be left out in dangerously cold conditions or cats that are living outdoors. #staywarm
