Summer heast & cars – a DEADLY combination

Temperatures heat up as summer arrives, and leaving animals in parked cars is not only unsafe, but also illegal. On days with temperatures in the low to mid-70s, the temperature inside a parked car can quickly reach 100 degrees. In hotter 85-degree weather, temperatures can reach 120 degrees within a half-hour – even if a car window is left open a crack. The most conscientious pet owners can make this potentially fatal mistake, so never leave a pet in your car and spread the word about this danger.
