PCSPCA Advisory

 

The Putnam County SPCA wants to remind owners of companion animals NOT to leave them unattended in vehicles, ESPECIALLY during periods of extreme heat. Temperatures in vehicles can rise 30 to 40 or more degrees above the outside temperature causing suffering and possible death of the animal. It is a crime in New York State if the animal goes into distress. 

DON'T RISK YOUR PET'S LIFE OR FACE ARREST FOR ANIMAL CRUELTY!
LEAVE YOUR PET HOME WITH PLENTY OF WATER INSTEAD OF IN YOUR VEHICLE.


The Putnam County SPCA reminds you that dogs left outdoors need appropriate shelter.
For dogs left outside, New York State has certain requirements in place to protect “man’s best friend”.  Although they are based on common sense, check and see if you meet all the requirements. Penalties range from monetary fines to arrest in the extreme where it becomes a criminal act.

• First—any dog kept outside must be “breed appropriate”. A short haired dog left outside in freezing temperature is definitely NOT breed appropriate, where a husky might be.
• Second—the dog needs to be provided with a shelter which must be:
• Large enough for the dog to stand up in
• Wide enough for the dog to turn around in
• Long enough for the dog to make “normal posturing moves” such as stretching out and contained within.
• The structure must be insulated
• The structure must be waterproof
• The structures must be one in which it can be easily cleaned and kept free from refuse including feces and urine.
• It must provide shelter from the elements.
In the cold months, hay on the bottom of the shelter will provide additional insulation.

In most cases, plastic shelters (igloos), although they may state on their packaging that they are “dog houses”, do NOT meet the requirements of the law. Should you have any questions regarding the law or if a shelter is appropriate, contact the Putnam County SPCA.

IT’S THE LAW!
