Animal Control Officers Will Sleep Outside

Three animal control officers in Saginaw, Michigan will be sleeping out in the elements this Friday from 6pm to 8am to raise awareness for people who make their dogs sleep outside in the winter.  The temperature is supposed to dip down into the teens and they won’t be in sleeping bags.  But they will have paramedics on site to check on them.  Most breeds are okay when it's 45 degrees or warmer.  Once it's below freezing, small dogs and dogs that don't have a lot of hair shouldn't be out for too long.  And when it's below 20 degrees, ALL dogs are at risk of hypothermia and frostbite.
