Let your community know that leaving your companion in the car is not okay by leaving flyers on windshields and notice boards.
It is too hot inside a car on a sunny day for anyone. Animals such as dogs are at risk of overheating which can result in death. It takes only a short time for an overheated dog to suffer critical brain, heart and liver damage. Once signs are visible it can often be too late.
Dogs can be comfortable with an air temperature of up to around 32 °C. Over that, dogs can start showing signs of overheating.
Signs of overheating:
If you notice a dog in a parked car, call SPCA or the Police.
If you are worried that your companion animal is suffering from being too hot contact your vet or after hours immediately.
Never leave your dog in the car, even if it is in the shade.
