As temperatures linger in the single digits, people aren’t the only one who should be spending time inside.

Animal shelter workers say pets need to stay inside too. Despite the extra fur, animals are at risk for frostbite just like humans. “They can get that on the tips of their ears, on the tips of their tails, they can even lose some of their toes because they’ll get frostbite,” Shelter worker Patti McCrae said.

They also remind pet owners not to leave their animal in the car for an extended period of time.
