Hot cars are not place for pets

Mornings

With summer in full swing, we are experiencing some of the hottest temperatures of the year.

However, regardless of what the temperature is outside, it’s never okay to leave your pets locked in the car.

No matter what the temperature feels like outside, it becomes much hotter inside a car and can become a death trap in a matter of minutes even with the windows down.

Some of the dangers of leaving a pet in a hot car are suffocation, brain damage, seizures, death, and organ failure to name a few.

If you are found guilty of leaving a pet locked in the car; you could face a fine of up to $500 or even 90 days in jail, with animal cruelty charges brought against you.
