Hot Cars Can Kill

Hot Cars Can Kill.

Even ​with the window down your pet can overheat in a matter of mintues.

Why Pets and Vehicles Don't Mix:

  • ​A dog has a normal body temperature of about 30 º C (102º F).  Unlike people, a dog has a limited ability to sweat to cool off.  So even a brief time in a hot environment can be life threatening.
  • Even on a minld day, with the windows open and parked in the shade, the temperature in a vehicle can rapidly reach very dangerous levels
  • After reading a body temperature of 41º  C, it doesn't take long for a pet to begin suffering irreparable braing damage or death.
  • Every summer, too many pets are left in life threatening situations inside hot vehicles.  But there is something you can do about it: 
     ACT FAST.  SAVE A LIFE. ​ ​If you find a pet unattended in a hot vehicle call your local police department.
