Pennsylvania – As we get into the colder months, remember that any weather that is too cold for you is also too cold for your pets.

Pennsylvania now has a law that forbids people from keeping dogs outside in extreme cold or heat.

If the weather is below 32 degrees or above 90 degrees, dogs are not allowed outside for more than 20 minutes.

Anyone caught violating the law could face felony charges, including up to 7 years in prison and a $15,000 fine, even if it’s the first time police has caught them leaving the dog out.

Please bring your pets inside, and if you see an animal outside in the cold, call your local police and report it immediately.
