Summer is just around the corner, and with summer heat comes extra responsibility for animal lovers like us. Sadly, hundreds of animals die in hot cars every year while waiting for their owners to return from the supermarket, the post office, or the shopping mall. While running a short errand may seem harmless to us, a ten- or twenty-minute wait in a vehicle on a warm day can easily turn into a dire emergency for an animal.
If you see a companion animal left in an unattended vehicle on a warm day, that animal may only have minutes before difficulty breathing and/or heat stroke symptoms set in.
Do you know what to do in that situation?
Your actions could save an animal’s life!
