Summer Heat and Protecting Animals: It’s Our Responsibility

If you notice a neighbor’s pet outside in the heat for too long, please do something.

If you see a pet wandering alone outside, please don’t assume they are okay. They may be a missing pet or be a stray in need of help. Do something.

If you notice a pet in a car in a store parking lot, do something. Since its hard to know how long they have been in the car or will be, bring the license plate number to the store so they can announce it over the intercom. Other things you can do is call the police or 911. Laws are different depending on where you are about whether it is ok to break a car window to get a pet out of a hot car.
