If you have pets, it's a good idea to plan & practice how you will leave and where you will go if you are advised to evacuate.

💡 Put your name and contact information on your pet’s ID tag in case you’re separated in an emergency.

It's getting very chilly out there - bring your pets inside!

The temperatures are continuing to drop. Just like humans, pets can suffer from hypothermia and frostbite. Please do not leave pets outdoors unsupervised or overnight. Bring them inside so they can be nice and cozy too!

If you see an animal left outdoors during freezing temperatures for a significant period of time (an hour or more), please call 311 or file a report online for Animal Lack of Care here: https://dallascrm.force.com/public/servicetypes. We will be incredibly busy over the next weeks responding to these calls, so please do not call 311 if your neighbors are simply letting their pets out to exercise and relieve themselves.

Note to pet owners: Puppies, small dogs, and older dogs have less tolerance for the cold, while large double-coated dogs like Huskies, Akitas, or Great Pyrenees have a higher tolerance for colder temperatures. Those winter-built dogs may be eager for some extra playtime in the cold! Just be sure to supervise them, provide water so they can stay hydrated, and be ready to let them back inside once they are done.

For more details on adequate sheltering of animals in inclement weather, please review Chapter 7 of the Dallas City Code here: https://codelibrary.amlegal.com/codes/dallas/latest/dallas_tx/0-0-0-101701

A Wind Chill Watch is in effect from Thursday morning through Friday morning for all of our North and Central Texas counties. Dangerously cold wind chills as low as -15 degrees are possible. These wind chills could result in hypothermia if precautions are not taken. Avoid extended time outside, and if you absolutely have to brave the elements, make sure to bundle up with multiple lightweight layers and cover exposed skin.

Freezing temps are coming are our way! Here are some tips to prevent burst pipes and damage during winter weather: 1) Wrap any exposed pipes. 2) Let hot and cold water drip from faucets on outside walls. Even a trickle can help keep pipes from freezing. 3) Leave cabinet doors open under sinks. 4) Drain and unhook hoses from outside faucets and cover faucets with insulated covers or wrap in dry cloths. 5) Turn off your automatic sprinkler system to prevent burst irrigation pipes. 6) Shut-off water to vacant properties with the home’s private shut-off valve. For more information visit: bit.ly/2PpDsvk_WinterTips If you do have a water emergency, please call 214.651.1441 8am-5pm Mon-Fri, or call 311 after hours.
