Each year, the OSPCA receive hundreds of calls regarding "Pets in Distress!"  Animal Welfare officers have heard it all before: “I left the window down for him”...“I wasn’t going to be long.” But honestly?  This "habit" has disastrous consequences that are 100% avoidable!  You wouldn't leave your kids alone, why on earth do you think it's OK to do just that, to your animals?  Remember: Rising Summer Temps + Dogs in Cars = EXTREME DANGER! Since dogs don’t cannot sweat, they can only withstand the heat for a very short period of time. If a dog's body temp increases by just two degrees, it can result in irreparable brain damage within minutes - even death!

Take the pledge: Let’s have "NO HOT PETS" in vehicles this summer!

If we ALL do our part, we can ensure this will never come to pass. Together, let's ensure that both Humans & Canines can truly enjoy those Lazy, Hazy "Dog Days" of Summer!  For more info, visit: nohotpets.ca, or: facebook.com/ontariospca.  Share these links with everyone you know! And lastly: if you do find a pet that you think may be suffering from heat exhaustion, and the owner cannot be quickly located, contact the Police, or contact your local Ontario SPCA Branch.  Email cruelty@ospca.on.ca, or call 1-888-ONT-SPCA (668-7722).
