Spring Thaw means Dangerous Waterways!

Warmer weather, rain and melting snow are sure signs of spring.  This also means ice conditions are very dangerous on ponds, rivers and lakes.  Rising water levels and spring run off make for fast moving water and strong currents.  Pets can break through thin ice or fall into rapid running water and be swept away in the blink of an eye.
Each year family pets are lost due to unsafe waterways.  Don't let your companion be a victim.  Keep pets safe --  prevent drowning and deadly hypothermia by ensuring that dogs and other pets are kept away from water during the spring thaw.  Swimming season will be here before you know it, keep pets out of and away from water until then!
