Cold Snap Bad for People and Pets / Public News Service, 7 Jan 2014 [cached]
And any time temperatures hover around zero, it's dangerous for pets, says Gayle Viney, spokeswoman for the Dane County Humane Society.
She advises dog owners to carefully monitor the length of time their pets are outdoors when it's this cold.
"Very limited times outside," she says. "Just enough for them to go to the bathroom, and even then, only let them out for a couple minutes.
"If they aren't doing anything, bring them back in, let them warm up, and try and take them out again. Don't just let them stay out there and wait for them to go, because it just might even be too cold for them."
Viney adds pet owners need to be patient with their four-legged friends during cold snaps like this.
She advises owners to keep an eye on their pets when they're let out, and watch for signs that the cold is getting to them - even with dogs that are bred to do well in cold weather.
"We'll start to see even more breeds like the Huskies and the thicker-coated animals and dogs that really do better outside in these colder temperatures," she says.
Viney says cats are notorious for seeking unusual places to stay out of the elements.
"It's always good to kind of give the hood of your car a little bit of a bang to see if there's a cat that's maybe crawled up into the hood to just try and find warmth against the engine," she explains.

"I would hate to suggest a dog has a right to bite someone, but attacks can happen if a dog, regardless of its breed, is feeling stressed or backed into a corner," says Gayle Viney, communications coordinator for the Dane County Humane Society.
"We learned a lot about planning and that building," laughs Viney. "In all honesty, though, we were real happy that that decision was made."
The Humane Society was one of several area animal shelters and canine advocates that opposed the ordinance. While there was near unanimous agreement that spaying and neutering are among the best ways to control pet populations, targeting pit bull-type dogs, they say, would create a slew of new problems for both the city and shelters.
Viney and other opponents argued that shelters in cities that have passed similar breed-specific ordinances saw substantial increases in pit bull intakes.
Viney agrees there likely are reasons beyond the ordinances for declines in these cities, but isn't familiar enough with the situation to comment specifically.
While most local animal shelters and rescues oppose breed-specific legislation, Viney says the Humane Society would get behind a mandate that all dogs be spay or neutered. She suggested it could be a component of the dangerous dogs ordinance already on the books.
"All dogs have the potential to bite," she says.
"That was definitely one of the ordinance's gray areas," Viney says.
Viney agrees more a more inclusive process is needed.
"We absolutely plan to have a big role in moving forward," she says.

We hope that is because pet owners are being responsible and keeping their pets inside and on short, monitored outside bathroom breaks," DCHS Public Relations Coordinator Gayle Viney said in a release.
According to DCHS, animals can be outside for short intervals, but if they start shivering, whimpering, repeatedly lifting their paws or getting lethargic they might be getting too cold.
They also suggest buying short-haired dogs a sweater or jacket to stay warm.
"You wouldn't go outside without proper gear in the winter, so don't send your pets out unprepared either," Viney said.

I respectfully disagree with Dane County Humane Society's Gayle Viney who says " least now there is knowledge that all facilities are meeting a minimum standard for dogs. It should be and is a selling point for adopting from a licensed facility."
Ms. Viney's statement must have made pet stores like Animart very happy, since Animart can legally obtain their puppies from DATCP-licensed "factory farm" facilities like Perry Bontrager's.

"DCHS currently offers reduced spay/neuter surgeries every week for pit bull terriers, a 'Positively Pitties' training class and a Community Dog Day Program that focuses on sharing available low cost spay/neuter options and providing assistance to specific communities where DCHS sees a high intake of stray animals, especially pit bull terriers," DCHS Public Relations Coordinator Gayle Viney said in the release.
