DANSVILLE, MI (WLNS) – Animal advocates are spreading the word this morning to bring your pets inside when temperatures get this cold.
But what about animals that are too big? The Turning Pointe Rescue Mission has 87 donkeys, mules, horses and even a cow.
Many stay outside but when they start to shiver or lay down in the snow the rescue has to work fast to prevent hypothermia.
To keep their body temperatures up large animals eat more hay than usual.
The rescue doubles their use in winter from 12 bales a day to 24.
