(KMOV.com) -- Extra officers will be out on St. Louis City streets looking out for pets that are stranded out in the cold which could turn into big fines for the owners.

St. Louis Police are working with both animal control and groups like Stray Rescue to prevent pets from getting frostbite or even death.

Officials said if any pets are found left outside on chains, owners will be fined and the pets will be taken away.

If you see any pets stranded in the cold, you’re asked to call animal control at 314-657-1500.
