Dogs are hardy animals and loving pets, but they can fall victim to exposure to bad weather. With that in mind, Finger Lakes SPCA of Central New York Director Carol Russell said on Monday’s Finger Lakes Morning News it’s important for dog owners to provide an appropriate shelter for their dogs if they spend any time outdoors.
Russell stressed the shelter should fit the dog.
It’s against the state’s ag and markets law to not have appropriate shelter, but Russell said the SPCA would rather educate than prosecute.
You can get more information on sheltering your dog by calling or dropping by the SPCA shelter on York St. in Auburn.
