January 3, 2014 During these bitter cold temperatures, the Humane Society of Northwestern Pennsylvania reminds you to keep your pets indoors. Joe Grisanti, the Executive Director of the Humane Society, says no matter if your pet is used to being outside typically, with single digit temperatures, it's too cold to keep them outside for an extended period of time.
