Dogs are dying! Do not let this happen to your Dog this Winter!

Yes, pet pawrents – both 2020 and 2021 have been a wishful ride with the soaring pandemic where life has become unpredictable. Winter is just in, and somehow, most of us have all our attire in place to see us through this season, all healthy and glorious, but can we say the same for our fur friends? 

Of course Not!

Do not let this happen

Winter will be all chilly to the bone, not to mention certain areas in the Midwest that will be barely getting by when it comes to its temperature.

While we are well equipped, our fur friends and fur babies require just a little effort.

Animal abuse and deaths date back to the beginning of time. Plenty of activist organizations such as the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) champion the cause for animal safety and ways to prevent animal abuse. Though they perform their best in healing real-time abuse, there are still plenty of things to do. 

Every year, PETA receives reports about dogs, cats, and other animals who have died after being left outdoors in cold weather. In 2020 – 2021, 28 dogs died, and 460 dogs were rescued from the brink of death due to cold weather —and those are just the ones reported.

Most are ignored.

There are many organizations like PETA out there, yet the deaths of animals during the chilly, cold weather are inevitable.

Though such cruelty and animal deaths are unintentional and caused mainly by ignorance/negligence, it is a severe offense to leave your pets in extreme weather that can be fatal. After all, we would not do this to another human, so why should we treat our pets differently? Every trouble that ever happened was due to the dearth of winter dog safety awareness.

At Waggle, we have always been trying our best to put the safety of the pets first, create awareness about pet protection and wellness and feel responsible when we come across such incidents. Surprisingly, dogs are allowed to die when a few routine and straightforward tips could have avoided such dangers entirely. 

Keep your pets close and keep them safe with Waggle Pet Monitor. Always make sure your pets are in an environment where you are sure of the ambiance and temperature.

Protect them from the frigid cold with Waggle Pet Monitor by monitoring their ambient temperature all the time and with real-time alerts whenever the temperature drops/rises. Waggle also comes with tons of features to make sure your pet is safe, and the place where there are at is comfortable.
