Do not leave your dog… your pets outside or in vehicles in this heat ever!!!
In light of reading multiple reports of dogs dying (slowly cooked from the inside out) by being left unattended in cars here is a public service announcements for all you mentally challenged and cruel morons… DON’T TAKE YOUR DOG (OR ANY OTHER LIVING CREATURE) WITH YOU IF YOU DON’T INTEND TO STAY RIGHT WITH YOUR DOG.
I don’t even let my dog outside in our big fenced in yard without supervising her, just exactly like you would a toddler.
What is it with people that bring their dogs along in a car and leave them? Are they nuts or just plain mean.
Dogs will even die if left outside too long in the heat… God, don’t get a dog or kitty if you’re not going to care for him/her……..they are not it’s they are living beings.
The body temperature of the animal will increase to the point where it is effectively boiled alive from the inside – Ch Supt Mike Flynn
Again, god how stupid are people? In just three minutes of googling I’ve seen over a hundred cases of dogs being left to die in the heat………..what in sam hell is going on with humanity? What happened to common sense and love for our pets?
Don’t just leave your dog, watch them, they are about as intelligent as a two year old child at most – when my kids were two I had to be on them like glue).
I don’t leave my dog alone ever, I know exactly where she is at and what she is doing at all times.
Don’t get a dog if you’re not going to take really good care of him/her.
Boiling to death is a horrible, gruesome way to die.

Make sure there is plenty of cool water out for them in the house and outside in the shade.
Cruelty Alert: Pets Suffering from Heatstroke in Parked Cars
Temperatures Are Rising: Be a Dog Defender: Help Save Animals This Summer! Cool Ideas for Hot Dogs – Please be proactive and vocal… you could be saving a life and definitely saving animals of a lot of suffering!!
ASPCA’s Pets in Hot Cars flyer (pdf) in her glovebox to give out when appropriate. Please print and distribute these flyers (pdf) in your neighborhood to help educate people about the danger of leaving pets in hot cars.
Please step up for abused and neglected pets and animals. Help them and be their voice. Call the authorities if you suspect a problem. It is always better to err on the pet’s or animal’s (or child’s) side! And always call animal services or the police if you see a pet locked in a car and/or out in a yard where it has no access to shade and water! More animals die from ignorant, neglectful and cruel owners than from diseases!!

Finally, someone gets it! Thank you so much for posting this! I would walk through parking lots and call animal control constantly this summer, just to help dogs out of those microwave ovens! And on days that weren’t so hot, I would leave a flyer saying the dangers of leaving pets in hot cars and that I took their plate number- so they needed to be more careful. Again, thank you so much for posting this. I write all of the time “consumers” about the dangers of things when it comes to pets! Keep writing!
