The Austin Animal Center is encouraging people with pets to prepare for the drop in temperatures across the Austin area over the next few nights. Temperatures will go below freezing in Travis County.

Remember, if it’s too cold for you, it’s too cold for pets. Outdoor pets should be brought indoors and out of cold weather. If pets cannot be brought inside, people should provide a warm space out of the rain, wind or cold. Line dog houses and sheds with blankets, bedding or straw.

The Austin Animal Center, Austin PetsAlive and Austin Humane Society are offering assistance with hay, blankets, dog houses, etc...read more here.
