The caring members of Animals Requesting Friends (ARF) remind you to protect your pets from winter weather.  Outdoor dogs & cats need suitable shelter to keep them warm, dry & free of frostbite or death.  Straw is the best bedding.  It helps generate heat.  Blankets only retain moisture, become wet & freeze, chilling rather than insulating your pet.  Dog & cat shelters should also face the south and be secured with bricks or blocks to prevent rolling.  If your pet doesn’t have proper shelter, a FREE straw-stuffed plastic barrel can be provided for your pet thanks to ARF’s “Roof Over Your Woof” Program & materials generously donated by Larry & Susie Rich of Rich Agri Distributors in Wayne City & Howard & Beverly Tanner at Fairfield Produce. To contact ARF’s “Roof Over Your Woof” Program, call 618-842-2241.  ARF’s shelters are not permanent structures & should only be used temporarily until they can be replaced by insulated homes.  Pets should be indoors during weather advisories & extreme temperatures.   Illinois law requires that pets have proper shelter, fresh water & food.  ARF encourages the public to contact ARF’s Humane Investigator at 618-599-7249 or your local police department to report pets that are not adequately protected from the elements to help prevent numerous cases of unnecessary suffering this winter.  Reports are kept confidential.  To contribute to ARF’s “Roof Over Your Woof” Program, please mail your donation to ARF, P.O. Box 324, Fairfield, IL 62837 or visit www.arfcares.org.  ARF is a not-for-profit 501c3 organization.  Your donation is tax deductible.
