Is Your Dog Cool?

Just a quick reminder.....

During the “dog days” of summer the temperature inside a car can rise to over 120 degrees in a matter of minutes, even if the car is parked in the shade. Dogs and cats can’t perspire and must dispel heat by panting and through the pads of their feet. An animal left in a care for only a few minutes can suffer from heat exhaustion, heat stroke and even die. Please play it safe this summer and leave your pet at home when you head out on the road.

If you see a pet in a car alone during the summer months, alert the management of the store where the car is parked. If the owner does not return promptly call the local police or animal control immediately. Visit MyDogIsCool.com to learn what you can do to protect dogs from the dangers of hot cars. Please help spread the word!
