Nassau County, NY - January 26th, 2015 - The Nassau County SPCA is urging all pet owners, during this blizzard, to limit their pet's time outdoors and to bring pets that are normally kept outdoors inside, this includes outdoor cats. Prolonged exposure to these dangerous, life-threatening conditions could result in a drop in pet's body temperature, hypothermia and death.
 
Thinking about how a person would behave tends to be a good rule. If we don't want to go out and expose ourselves to the risk of these dangerous life-threatening conditions, we wouldn't want to do that to our pets, right!
It is time to take special precautions to protect your pet during this blizzard.
 
Bring them inside...remember pets depend on us!
