"WICOMICO COUNTY ANIMAL LAWS "
ANSWERS TO A PREVIOUS POST OF 8/19/
ANIMALS IN EXTREME HEAT OR COLD WEATHER
I noted from a previous post the question had been ask to see just where the
County Laws stated to bring a dog inside , out of 90 degree temps.
Below you will find the site to view this under Wicomico County
Animal Care law requirements --- Title 133-23
" Animal Care"------page 33 , Under "B" , Shelter
for Domestic Animals , which was passed this year.
I could not believe the very negative statements posted on the Blog site as to
the article about bringing dogs in out of the heat . More so since the
Article explained in detail why they should be ! I guess it must have
been overlooked by the reader making the remarks. So, Stated once again ,
Dogs do Not Sweat as we humans do to cool themselves. Ask any
Vet in the area and they will tell you the same. I noted Dr. Johnson / McGee
has a sign saying " The heat can kill your animal. " Thank You ! Any one
owning a dog should be aware of that fact .
I hope this resolves the issue , knowing it is Wicomico County Law .
