If you’re traveling with your pet, please remember that temperatures inside a parked car will skyrocket in mere moments. Even a car that’s parked in the shade will create dangerously unsafe temperature conditions for any animal locked inside.
Leaving your cat or dog in a car while you run into the store for a few moments can put your pet at serious risk for hyperthermia and death.
Every summer we hear very tragic stories in the news about animals who suffer heat stroke or even die from being left in a parked car.
Enjoy your summer and enjoy traveling with your dog or cat but please be aware of this danger so you can avoid a tragedy.
