LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – With temperatures expected to dip into the single digits this weekend, the Lancaster County SPCA is worried some dogs might freeze to death.
The SPCA is pushing for a county ordinance making it illegal to tether a dog outside in freezing weather.
A dog is permitted to be out in the cold weather if it has adequate shelter to retain body heat.
In a recent newsletter, the SPCA encouraged residents to contact their state representative about a dog tethering bill.
