Animal Protection in Inclement Weather before another animal dies from exposure

I am advocating for animals who do not have a voice regarding their safety in extreme heat and cold. Too many dogs are freezing to death in cold weather and in the summer, they will die from heat stroke. We hope that owners will be responsible and do the right thing by bringing their pets in and protecting them. We are seeing that is not the case.
Currently Hendricks County does not have an ordinance to protect dogs left outside in inclement weather. We are asking the town council in Hendricks County to pass an ordinance that mirrors that of Marion County. This would seem to be to be common sense. Unfortunately that is not the case and we need an ordinance to be able to require people to protect their dogs. The ordinance would state exactly what Marion County has adopted. When it is below 40 degrees the dog must have shelter where the entrance is covered by a flexible wind proof material or self closing door. On a day where it is below 20 degrees or when a wind chill warning is issued the dog must be brought into a temperature controlled facility. The same goes for extreme heat. When it goes above 80 degrees, the dog must have shaded shelter, and above 90 degrees or when a heat advisory is issues (along with tornado warnings) the dog must be brought inside a temperature controlled environment.
Again, this is common sense for responsible pet owners. We need your help to protect those dogs who do not have responsible owners. Thank you for your support!
