Winter Weather Information to Keep Your Pet Safe

            Keep pets in mind when severe weather strikes. Bring pets indoors

  • Never let your dog off leash on snow or ice, especially during a snowstorm, dogs can lose their scent and easily become lost. More dogs are lost during the winter than during any other season, so make sure yours always wears ID tags.
  • Thoroughly wipe off your dog’s legs and stomach when he comes in out of the sleet, snow or ice. He can ingest salt, antifreeze or other potentially dangerous chemicals while licking his paws, and his paw pads may also bleed from snow or encrusted ice.
  • Never shave your dog down to the skin in winter, as a longer coat will provide more warmth. Own a short-haired breed? Consider a coat or sweater with a high collar or turtleneck with coverage from the base of the tail to the belly.
  • Never leave your dog or cat alone in a car during cold weather. Keep pets indoors if possible, especially if they are sensitive to the cold weather due to age, illness or breed type. If it’s to cold for you-It’s to cold for Them!

The Chelsea Bailey Butte-Silver Bow Animal Shelter is a non-profit, county-supported facility. We are primarily open for adoptions, education and Animal Control pick-ups. We are taking owner surrenders on a case-by-case basis. Please call ahead before bringing in animals as space is limited.

We are here to educate the public about the importance of spaying and neutering, proper animal care and the responsibility of pet ownership.

Thank you from our Shelter Staff and all our wonderful animals!
