PETA on Cold Weather Pet Tips

A criminal investigation continues after a dead dog was found frozen in Tioga County Pennsylvania...       

Investigators are trying to determine whether the dog died from being left in the cold or was put outside after it died.

We spoke with officials from PETA who say when temperatures reach below freezing it is important to keep animals indoors as much as possible, especially puppies, kittens, and older pets.

You should also wipe off your pets' paws when they return from outside, because salt and other chemicals can be harmful to your pets if the chemicals are ingested.

"These type of tragedies are 100% preventable. This is a message to the public that if they see an animal outside without shelter from the elements to please notify authorities right away because an animals life could depend on it," said Emily Allen the Associate Director of PETA's Community Animal Project.

The investigation into how the dog came to be frozen is ongoing and we will have more information as it becomes available.
