- Make sure the pet has adequate shelter. Adequate shelter includes three walls, a floor, and a ceiling.
- Make sure the pet has water (that isn’t frozen), and possibly some food. During colder weather animals must eat more because they burn more calories to stay warm.
- If you see any pets left outside with no shelter in cold weather, and you are not comfortable speaking with your neighbor about your concerns (or have in the past with no action) please contact the City of Gillette-Campbell Co Animal Shelter, (307) 686-5249. It does help the Animal Control officer if you document how often you see the pets outside, if you’ve spoken with the pet owner, and take pictures and/or video of the situations.
The Fur Kids Foundation board does ask that you please consider bringing any outdoor pets inside when it is cold, but we understand that's not always possible. Please just keep your pets warm and comfortable when they can't come inside.
