HOT CARS AND PETS DONT MIX
Summertime is upon us and it is time for a friendly reminder about not leaving your pets in a car on a hot day.
Every year we read stories about people breaking into cars to rescue pets from cars that are left in the blazing hot sun with no air movement.
Your vehicle can quickly reach a temperature that puts your pet at risk of serious illness and even death, even on a day that doesn't seem hot to you. And cracking the windows makes no difference.
The temperature inside your vehicle can rise almost 20º F in just 10 minutes. In 20 minutes, it can rise almost 30º F...and the longer you wait, the higher it goes. At 60 minutes, the temperature in your vehicle can be more than 40 degrees higher than the outside temperature. Even on a 70-degree day, that's 110 degrees inside your vehicle!
PLEASE keep your pet at home if he cant be with you at all times!
