"Yeah we just thought this is a bit much for him," said owner Dan Adams.
But for the owners of this 100lb Golden Retriever, these temperatures were just too much for this normally outdoor dog to handle.
"He's pretty tough but he's still our baby so we thought it'd be best to bring him in," said Adams.
Mo is one of the lucky ones, as humane societies across Western Kentucky have been flooded with calls of abandoned or not properly cared for animals during this polar plunge in temperatures.
"You know that's meant that it's just been a lot busy time for people answering the phones here and our animal control officers. There have been a lot of calls in, just people being concerned like you said about the well-being of a lot of pets," said Otto Corum, Hopkins County Humane Society.
The Hopkins County Humane Society has outdoor kennels, but enough space to bring those animals in when the temps drop. However, the Muhlenberg County Humane Society has had to turn away citizens bringing in animals because they are full. With one a new building experiencing construction issues, the kennels are at max capacity.
" I just wish people would understand," said Marquaitta Johnson, who helps out at the Muhlenberg County Humane Society. " That they're freezing to death out there, they need help. They don't need to be out there in frigid temperatures with frozen water and no food."
Animal control officers are working around the clock but if you notice in issue, here are some numbers to local humane societies:
