The Glasgow Police Dept. Animal Control Officers would like to share some information about the hot weather and your pets. How to prevent your pet from suffering in a hot car: · Do not take pets with you to run errands. Sparky may enjoy a fun car ride, but leaving him in the car while you go into the store for even 15 minutes on a hot day could turn deadly. · If you must take a pet with you somewhere, take them inside the store or building with you. If not, reconsider bringing them with you. · Have another person with you to stay in the car with pets while you run errands. They can keep pets company and petsit right there in the car… or simply leave them at home! Think cracking a window is sufficient enough to keep pets safe? Think again. Dogs and cats don’t sweat like we do. Dogs stay cool by panting and releasing heat through their paw pads, cats sweat only from their paws. Brain damage, pain and suffering, even death due to heatstroke or suffocation—these are some of the tragic results of a pet being left inside a hot car for even a short period of time. This is Animal Cruelty.
