Posted: Updated:

 

"The animals most at risk are the slick coated dogs, which tend to be your pitbulls, bull terrier breed, things like that. Those dogs, if they don't have a lot of fat on them and stuff, they're going to really struggle in this weather, if they even make it. Any extremity that's exposed is going to be susceptible to frostbite," said Jamie McAloon Lampan, the director of the Ingham County Animal Control.

 

If you see an animal outside you're worried about, call thes shelter at 517-676-8370 or your local police department.

MASON, Mich. (WLNS) - If it's too cold outside for you, it's also too cold for your pets.

Officers and staff at Ingham County Animal Control have been working overtime to help animals left outside in the cold. Staff say calls poured in all weekend, along with people bringing in animals they found outside.

Shelter staff want to remind people fur doesn't protect pets from these sub-zero conditions.
