Reminder from Montgomery County Animal Shelter About Animal Safety During Cold Weather
 
Loading Image...
 
If you have an outdoor animal, please bring them inside - if you need a crate, the shelter has some you can use! Contact staff at shelter.counter@mctx.org
 
If you see an animal in danger please contact Animal Control. If it is after hours please contact the Montgomery County Sheriff Office.
 
Animal Control: 936-442-7738 (Option 2)
Montgomery County Sheriff: 936-760-5871
Animal Cruelty Task Force under the Montgomery County Precinct 2 Constable: 936-539-7854
 

KEEP ALL ANIMALS INDOORS
 
In Texas, there are laws that make it illegal to leave a pet outside in extreme weather without adequate shelter, food, and water. Some cities also have specific ordinances to protect pets in extreme weather conditions.
 
UNLAWFUL RESTRAINT OF A DOG
 
Texas Health & Safety Code 821.101
 
A pet owner may not leave a dog outside and unattended by use of a restraint unless:
 
-Owner provides the dog access to adequate shelter
-A sturdy structure that must provide the dog protection from inclement weather (including snow, high winds, and extreme low temp).
 
CRUELTY TO NON-LIVESTOCK ANIMALS
 
Texas Penal Code 42.092
 
A person commits cruelty to a non-livestock animal if he or she fails to:
 
-Provide necessary food, water, care or shelter
-Abandon an animal in their custody
-Confine or transport an animal in a cruel manner
-Injures someone else's animal
-Overworks an animal
 
THINK AND THUMP
A warm vehicle engine can be an appealing heat source for outdoor animals. Check underneath your car, thump your hood and ensure no furry feline is underneath.

@TownHubAdmin : All three of mine are inside right beside me and comfy. They rule us and bark if we don't supply them with every need. One even stayed home from work today because it's too cold outside. My wish would be for all animals (including people) would have a safe warm place.
