Hot dogs hap­pier

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Dog own­ers are be­ing urged to make sure their pooch stays warm dur­ing the win­ter months.

SPCA na­tional chief ex­ec­u­tive Robyn Kip­pen­berger says dogs need a toasty place to sleep, just like peo­ple.

“Dogs lose body heat very rapidly and, just as with hu­mans, a cold dog is ex­tremely likely to be a sick and mis­er­able dog,” she says.

Fail­ing to pro­vide proper shel­ter is an of­fence un­der the An­i­mal Wel­fare Act.
