Hot Weather!! Please remember no pets or children left in cars!!Posted Sunday, June 24, 2012, at 7:37 PM
A pet can die of heatstroke within minutes of a car heating up inside. Cracking the windows don't help. Heatstroke in animals is anything over 104 degrees.
I have seen windows in parked cars in Texas heat blow out from the inside becoming too hot..
Within 20 minutes a car in 80 degree weather will heat up to 123 degrees inside. That is fast! Even with the windows cracked.
When outdoors, make certain your pets have shade and lots of cool fresh water.
Here is some great tips from the ASPCA website.
If you see a animal ( or child) in a car in distress call the local police department for help ASAP. 684-5811
