AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) -- While record-low temperatures are killing animals nationwide, here in the Valley, neighbors are being responsible.
Gary Webb with Augusta County Animal Control said the average number of calls they receive a day is about 11.
Monday and Tuesday, the office received almost three times that just to check on the welfare of animals.
Officers worked overtime to respond to the calls.
"Some people did have to be reminded. We can issue summons for not providing adequate care. Of course a lot of the places had frozen water. Just a reminder, you've got to get that water in there at least three times a day because it freezes so quick," said Webb.
Webb said no summons were issued this week.
