Wallowa County Humane Society reminds everyone that when the temperatures dip this low our four-legged friends often have a hard time.

The Humane Society recommends that all cats and dogs and other companion animals have shelter and water available at all times. Heat pads, heat lamps and heated water bowls can make the difference between life and death at times when temperatures drop below zero.

Bringing pets into the garage or the house can be life saving for them.

The WCHS also recommends checking that horses and other livestock have access to running water or heated water tanks.

Feral cats lose their food source with snow. The WCHS can help with providing food and other help.

Call 426-0360 if you need assistance with feeding these animals.
