No matter the temperature, pet owners should take care of their furry friends.
February is responsible pet ownership month and the City of Fort Saskatchewan stressed the importance of pet care all year-round.
“It isn’t just for the cold weather, it’s also when it’s hot out and the summer time. Throughout the year we need to make sure animals have sufficient food, water and protection,” said municipal enforcement supervisor, Matt Lowther.
It's also important to leash your pet when out for walks to keep your pet safe.
“That’s a requirement of the bylaw but more importantly, it’s going to keep the animal from running away or keep them from acting aggressively towards another animal,” noted Lowther.
Another way to be a responsible pet owner is to licence your pet. Fort residents can register animals online or at city hall.
