Animal Shelter Providing Emergency Home for Pets in the Cold
Posted 4:45 p.m.
Because the freezing temperatures predicted over the next few days may be deadly to pets, the Animal Shelter is offering temporary, emergency housing for cats, dogs and small companion animals. If you or someone you know needs to utilize this service, contact the shelter at 703-830-1100, extension 2, or call the police non-emergency number at 703-691-2131, TTY 711.
For all pet owners, don’t forget your pets — bring pets/companion animals inside; move other animals to sheltered areas with non-frozen drinking water. Read some more tips to prepare your pets.
