Bring your pets indoors

With an arctic front bearing down on Texas, the Georgetown Animal Shelter wants to remind everyone to take care of their animals this winter.

The best thing to do is to keep pets indoors during bad weather.  In addition to cold temperatures, the wind chill is dangerous, and pets can suffer hypothermia and frostbite.

For dogs and cats that are left outside all the time, make sure to provide a dry, draft-free shelter that is small enough to hold body heat and large enough for them to lie down. The shelter should have supplemental bedding or auxiliary heat and protection from wind and rain.

If you notice a pet in the city limits of Georgetown that is not being properly sheltered, you can report the details to animal control by calling the police dispatcher at 512-930-3510, ext. 6.  (Outside the city limits, contact Williamson County Animal Control.)

For questions, contact the Georgetown Animal Shelter at 512-930-3592 or animalsvc@georgetown.org. The shelter is located at 110 WL Walden Dr. in Georgetown, and their web address is pets.georgetown.org.
