Summer is Here -- Don't Leave Your Pet in the Car Ever
Summer is here. Pet lovers will be out and about, often with their pets aboard. Sadly, sometimes people don't realize how quickly a car can heat up and just leave their pets in the car while they shop or grab a bite to eat.
Even on relatively cool summer days in the low 70's, a car's internal temperature can rise to a scorching 116 degrees in just an hour. And keeping the windows open a crack barely makes a difference. Hot cars are death traps.
MyDogIsCool.com explains how you can help to protect dogs from the dangers of hot cars--how quickly cars heat up in warm weather, whether it's too hot to take your dog along today, and ways to educate our fellow pet owners about the hazards of leaving a pet in a hot car, even for a little while.
If you see a parked car with animals inside, you can have some of their "Don't Leave Me in Here -- It's Hot!" fliers on hand and place the flier under the windshield wiper. If an animal seems to be in imminent danger or a child is left unattended inside a car, call 911 for assistance.
