Domesticated pets are not bred to endure the current outside temperatures-the coat and fur will not keep them warm enough to be outside, chained and/or confined to a pen. Paws and extremities are especially sensitive to cold.
After hours of being left outside in frigid temperatures a healthy dog or cat will suffer hypothermia, immeasurable suffering, and possible death. Very young, elderly, and frail animals are even more vulnerable. A flimsy doghouse is a poor excuse for shelter. Water bowls freeze causing dehydration, and food is inedible or non-existent.
