Local pet adoption center looks into pet care this winter

Pet care has become crucial this winter due to the drop in temperatures, especially for new owners.

Pet care is crucial all year round, but especially for the winter. This is important information for owners who currently have pets or are looking to obtain one.

“No exposure to cold temperatures. Even though the animals wear a fur coat, they still have areas of skin prone to frostbite or any other kind of temperature change like this. said Ruth Thompson, founder and director of ANNA Shelter.

An experienced pet owner looking to adopt another furry friend has a plan to make sure their new pet is safe and warm this winter.

“We keep them inside. They are not outdoor cats so they will be nice and snuggle up to us on the bed with the duvets on and just keep them warm and healthy and entertained. We are ready for it. said Vera Bombardier, animal owner.

While a pet makes a great gift, ANNA Shelter recommends that you don’t surprise your loved ones with a pet this holiday season.

“Parents have asked me, ‘Hey, we’re leaving work for the next ten days, it’s a great time to bring a new animal home.’ and I agree with that. We never want a pet to be a surprise or “I want to give this kitten to my girlfriend”. It doesn’t work that way. ‘ Thompson said.
