#childsafetytips | Expert shares tips to keep pets happy, safe for winter holidays

With the holidays upon us and winter temperatures settling in, Lubbock Animal Services is offering pet owners some animal safety tips and suggestions to keep furry friends – and their loved ones – merry.

Steven Greene, director of LAS, said as temperatures dip to near freezing, people should start thinking about bringing their pets indoors.

“A lot depends on just the animal themselves, but we always say any time it’s under 32 and there’s any moisture in the air, you need to get all of the dogs that are tethered up off of those tethers and into homes,” he said.

When it does snow in Lubbock, Greene said it’s OK for animals to play in the snow as long as they are running and moving to keep their body heat up.
