Evansville Animal Care and Control is offering bales of straw to those who need it for their pets.
Officials say that with temperatures dropping, people who leave pets outside need to ensure they are keeping their pets warm. They recommend giving your outdoor pets houses, and they say it's important to make sure there is bedding inside the house. Animal Control says blankets will freeze, so people should consider using straw instead.
Anyone in need of bales of straw can contact Animal Control at (812) 435-6015. They are located at 815 Uhlhorn Street.
