Syracuse, N.Y. – The Syracuse area is forecasted to experience record low temperatures over the next few days and nights.  The Syracuse Police Department Animal Cruelty Investigator would like to remind pet owners to protect them and bring them inside during the cold weather.

Adrian’s Law was enacted earlier this year, which requires pet owners to bring them inside or provide adequate shelter when extreme temperatures are present.  Anyone found guilty of violating this law is subject to a fine and/or a possible jail sentence.

Please remember to provide extra care to your pets during these extreme weather conditions.
