Don’t leave pet in hot car

SHARE Don’t leave pet in hot car

With the weather heating up, the Humane Society of the United States would like to remind your readers that summer temperatures can be deadly for pets left unattended in parked cars.

In just minutes, pets left in parked cars can suffer heat stress, brain damage and death, even if you park in a shady spot. The best place for your pet is at home.

If you see a pet in a parked car, notify the closest business and ask someone to make an announcement. If necessary, contact your local animal control officer or police officer to rescue the animal.
