Keep Dogs Out of Hot Cars!

Many pet owners believe if they crack a window, they can leave their dog in the car while they run a quick errand.⁣

⁣❌ We’re here to remind you that this isn’t safe!⁣

⁣As the summer days heat up, it’s crucial not to leave your dogs alone in the car, even for a minute.⁣⁣

⁣⁣The inside of a car can heat up to deadly temperatures within minutes, putting your dog at risk for heatstroke. Any outside temperature over 70 degrees can prove fatal to a pup left inside a vehicle, even with cracked windows.⁣ 🚗⁣

⁣⁣If it is 75 degrees outside, it only takes 10 minutes to reach 100 degrees inside a car. If it’s 100 degrees outside, it only takes 15 minutes to reach 140 degrees inside.⁣⁣

⁣⁣Dogs overheat very quickly and struggle to cool themselves down. ⁣

⁣Play it cool, and leave your pups at home during these hot days! 🐶
