It’s that time of year again where we continue our efforts for # nohotpets , it’s hot and sunny out and everyone is out enjoying the nice weather. With that being said our dispatch team has been receiving calls every day about animals being left unattended in hot cars.
There is no excuse for leaving a pet unattended in a vehicle and this summer we need your help to share this important message and save lives, we want to share this early in hopes to lessen the many emergency calls we receive.
Be a No Hot Pets ambassador this summer. Join thousands of Canadians who have already taken the No Hot Pets pledge online Visit nohotpets.ca to take the pledge!
Be sure to spread the message on social media about the dangers of leaving your pet in your vehicle!
You should never leave your dog alone in a car even with the car running and air conditioner on. On a warm day, temperatures inside a vehicle can rise rapidly to dangerous levels. On an 85-degree day, for example, the temperature inside a car with the windows opened slightly can reach 102 degrees within 10 minutes. After 30 minutes, the temperature will reach 120 degrees. Your pet may suffer irreversible organ damage or die. It’s not worth the risk, keep them at home or board them at a kennel/daycare if they cannot go with you.

Take down the license plate number, color and make/model of car if possible. This will be important information so that local authorities can locate them easier and get the animal assistance as soon as possible.
