The Shenandoah County Animal Shelter provides essential animal services to the citizens of Shenandoah County.
Colder weather is coming!! Here are a few things to keep in mind about your outside pets…
- Animals need a warm shelter with insulation away from a cold draft. If possible, bring them inside!
- Some animals will try to stay warm by finding a warm car engine to crawl into…make some noise before starting your car.
- Check your pet’s paw pads frequently as salt from sidewalks will irritate and injure them. Wipe them off with a warm towel.
- Be aware of signs of trouble such as: anxiety, shivering, whining or movement has slowed down. These are signs of hypothermia.
- Frozen water will break a plastic bowl as it expands. Use a stainless steel bowl and make sure water is unfrozen at all times.
CATS, CATS AND MORE CATS!
The Shenandoah County Animal Shelter is in need of adopters! The shelter is overflowing with adoptable cats (most are already spayed and neutered). These young felines shouldn’t have to grow up in an animal shelter! If you can’t adopt, think about sponsoring an animal.
