    If you see something like this please say something!! The Humane Society of the United States has guidelines for what to do if you see a dog tied up outside in the cold:
    1. Document everything. Write down the date, time and location of the animal and any other details that might be relevant.
    2. Take photos or videos to help paint the full picture.
    3. Take the evidence to your local animal control agency or sheriff's office. For your own reference, take note of whom you speak to, so that you can follow up with the complaint in a few days.
    4. Call the agency or the sheriff's office after you've issued your complaint for updates and to make sure they've followed up on the situation.

    I never understood people who would just leave their dog on the cold cement or wet ground to sleep. Whenever I asked, people said that dog are supposed to live like that and I never questioned it too much, even though I would have liked for the dogs to have a better made house, like... way bigger, since most I saw were also little, if they even had one at all, and some way to warm up. Or at least check up on them as often as possible. Or even take them inside if it gets too cold, for at least a few hours. I guess I should be lucky we have a relatively pretty okay climate, but still.

    I call animal control all the time on my neibors. They let there dogs freeze in -20. I have no problems with it. One person has even been fined because i called. Its up to good pet owners to look out for all animals. Because if you dont they will suffer

    I never think that a dog can survive in the cold because I never really believed that they're fur are not very that thick and I never really thought that it would be a good idea to leave a dog outside in the cold in dog house at night I just love to bring my dogs inside and giving them love that they need.

    My dogs like to sleep outside for some reason. Their dog flap is open all night. Idk why they sleep out there! I’ve called them in when it was cold, and they came in, then went straight back outside when I left the room! Their doghouse is fully insulated and there is hay, newspaper and blankets in there and the entrance is another dog flap. They just won’t sleep inside! Is that a bad thing? I don’t force them too, and I don’t know how to stop it cause if I lock them inside they whine and scratch at the back glass door. Should I do something?

    We have cats on campus that are wild but the director of the honors college gives them food and built them houses to shelter themselves from the snow. They're filled with thermal blankets and she feeds them daily. The sad thing about this is that the cats are completely wild and we couldn't get them inside if we tried.

    Is it okay if I have a dog or cat on a heating pad in a dog igloo with a tarp over it with wood clippings and blankets ?

  • alis49281
    alis49281 24 days ago

    Some dogs have such thin fur, that they will start to freeze very quickly even at higher temperatures as soon as rain falls.
    Almost all dogs will not be comfortable in the cold, because in their domestication they lost most of the adaptions they had to be comfortable outside.
    This doesn't apply to dog breeds who are meant to guard sheep (and these are not alone and sleep with the sheep) and dogs adapted to very cold climates who are used to these - but these dogs are NOT alone because they warm each other. Yes, none of them sleep alone outside in the cold. In fact: If in doubt, let the dog chose...

    I remember my forst cat, she was outside while it was storming and thundering outside, cold and rainy. so i put on my jacket and warm shoes to go out looking for her. When she saw me she cam right for me and we went inside >< I would never leave my babypet outside when its weather like this or freezing temperatures, i mean wtf :(. my kittehs now live save and warm inside of my own own apartment, maybe a bit sad that they can't go outside but at least they are save and healthy.

    I believe it might be just as bad in the summer. All the dogs we’ve had have been house pets. They are allowed outside (same with my cat) but if it’s too hot or cold or it’s raining they’re only out for a little bit.

    Me and my dad made a house for my dog but we have a roof and a porch with the roof so no snow gets near our dog. We have a heater/air conditioner in his house so like rn it is cold. It is turned on as a heater. When it is summer if it isnt so hot he can be outside with the air conditioner but if it is sooo hot we take him inside

  • Pierce Chemical Veil Falling disco out Horizon

    My dad had my German shepherd in a dog house for the summer and winter, but he put a heater in it for her and a air conditioner depending on the season. He even had a radio for the little dog. My dad made her dog house to be huge and had a “door” I thing it was a semi thick blanket to cover the door way for the winter and nothing for summer. That dog lived inside but when we were outside as a family or if he wanted out we left are door open for her to come in when ever. She loved that house💕. R.I.P. Maddie

    Nothing angers me more then people who get dogs, only to lock them in the back yard.
    Then they complain the dog has behavioural issues. Well of course it does, its a social animal and you dump it in the yard with no interaction with anyone.

    My doesn't like being outside for long in winter weather. Long enough to do his business and maybe romp on the porch before he's had enough and just want to go in for a nap. One of those dogs where all he's looking for is an easier way of life.

  • PaperBag

    My dog is a husky mix so he stays outside because he loves the cold but he is never allowed outside during the night. He's never left outside to sleep, he's always inside the house. Sometimes, even during the day, it'll get so cold that everyone agrees to let him inside while my mom is cooking. I don't understand why people leave their dogs out during the winter.

    My dog considers 'cold' to be not sitting directly in front of the heater blocking all my heat.
    But seriously, thanks for sharing this because honestly this is despicable and always has been to me. Pets are trouble inside, yes. They can poop or pee or destroy things. But I've never seen anybody make their kid sleep outside for doing all of the above. Animals are family, not items. You are their parents, not their owners. Don't own a pet if you can't love them how they deserve to be loved.

  • Jayne Davis

    What about dog houses that are raised up, insulated & kept out of the wind? Huskies live that way & still do their jobs & have fun. Day can be just as cold as night in places like Alaska & Canada so I don’t know what to think.
    We have 2 cats who’re always nice & warm inside... unless the boy escapes, he sleeps under the picnic table while he waits for someone to wake up & let him in. He has woken us up yowling to get in if it’s cold or raining on him so he’s ok. My sister’s dog used to sleep in her kennel but was allowed to sleep inside because she refused to use the dog house. Her parents gave up & when they went to bring her in, they were shocked by how cold it was. If they’d known, they would’ve kept her in automatically. Angel saved her own life with the power of stubborn yet adorable. Unless you get up to check the temperature every couple of hours, you can’t know what kind of cold your dog is suffering through.

    Dark Fire 2 months ago

    The longest my dog was outside in freezing temperatures was no longer than 25 minutes. The reason is, it was snowing so heavily here in SC and my service animal had never experienced it; but he LOVED it! He loved just stomping and running through the snow so much, he left my side quite a few times. (He NEVER does that when we are outside our back or front yard.) I literally had to drag him back inside and smother him in blankets just so he wouldnt get sick or literally freeze to death. Such a big goof! Shame on you if you leave your dogs outside in the freezing cold for several hours!

    I leave my dogs and cats out,
    They hate being cooped up
    I even open my door at night
    To see if they want to come in
    And they just look at me and
    Walk away even the cat all they want is food or some water.

    My dog never ever in her life goes outside the house , and if she does it’s because either she needs to potty which is just like after she’s done , she’ll bark and we will bring her back inside , or we go on a road trip together in a car or we’re travelling to maybe a groomer ? So yeah, if she’s too cold , even inside my room , with tons of blankets , then we will usually set up a heater for her and she will sleep nearby there or if she’s too hot then i usually on the air conditioner for her
