Tips to protect your pets from the cold

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- The mercury has dropped substantially in recent days. The cold weather doesn't affect just people.

Monika Sperke from the Arizona Animal Welfare League offered a good rule of thumb: If it's too cold for you, it's too cold for your pet.

She also introduced April Warnecke to an adorable pup that's hoping to find a forever home this holiday season.

Arizona Animal Welfare League is located at 30 N. 40th Place, Phoenix (just north of Washington and 40th streets). For more information, call 602-273-6852.
