Shelter trying to bring awareness to dogs in freezing temperatures

Posted: Updated:
ST. MARTINVILLE, La. -

As temperatures drop below freezing in Acadiana, the St. Martin Parish Animal Shelter is bringing attention to the risk of leaving pets exposed to extreme temperatures. 

On Monday, January 1, 2018, from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm, volunteers for the St. Martin Parish Animal Services will be tethering themselves to a tree at the St. Martin Parish Animal Shelter to bring awareness to animals being kept outside without shelter in such weather. The event will be streaming live on the shelters Facebook Page. The public is invited to attend. 

The group wants to educate the public that dogs are unable to withstand extreme cold and that if you are unable to bring your pet indoors, providing a shelter and straw, doubling their food amounts and moving them to a dry area away from dampness are just a few easy things a person can do to protect them.

"Sometimes all you have to do is make a suggestion, educate, have a conversation out of kindness to shed light on an issue, ask someone if they need help to do what they know is good and right and it can be resolved. You may not be part of the problem, but you can be part of the solution," said  Michelle D. Brignac, Director of St. Martin Parish Animal Services.

St. Martin Parish Animal Services is located at 1004 Industrial Park Rd. St. Martinville, LA 70582.
