During severe weather, although priority will be given to human needs, the health and welfare of animals is also important.

Local Authorities (LAs) and the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) will monitor the situation in liaison with the RSPCA. Farming Unions and other organisations will also play a role in assisting farmers/pet owners to protect the welfare of animals.
