Tips for Protecting Cats and Dogs

Bring pets inside, especially at night, to help keep them safe. Free-ranging cats are at risk not only from depredation by wildlife but also domestic dog attacks, injuries from vehicle strikes, and a range of diseases. 

Do not leave pet food unattended outside, feed free-ranging pets in your presence and remove any uneaten food. 

When feeding pets outdoors, do not chain or restrict a dog's movements so that it is unable to get away from its food as this is more likely to cause an aggressive encounter if wildlife approaches.
