With the wind making it feel like -30 or colder most days, your pets don't want to be outside any more than you do.
"We know that cats and dogs are more durable than we are, but in this type of weather it endangers their health to be outside," said Greg Peters, the Director of Protective Services for the Town of Drumheller.
Peters added that animals use more than twice their usual amount of energy being outside on cold days like we have had lately.
"We've had a couple of calls in town lately about animals left out," Peters added, "animals surely suffer, we have to take all measures reasonable."
He added that if any one has concerns about an animal being left outside, they need to call bylaw at (403) 823-1363.He also stressed that there is no cost to the caller.
"They need to call us so we can try and figure out what's happening with the animal, we need to investigate it."
He added that most people in town are good for caring for their four legged friends.
