It still happens far too often!  If you find a pet unattended in a hot vehicle, don't wait.  Call 310-SPCA (7722) or your local police department asap!  “I left the window down for him”...“I wasn’t going to be long.” Animal Welfare officers have heard it all, and honestly?  This behaviour's disastrous consequences are 100% avoidable!

Otherwise loving and caring dog owners leave their pets in vehicles during hot summer months, putting their animals’ safety at risk and even causing death.  It's an ongoing problem, and there is simply NO EXCUSE for it. We need your help to share this important message to Pet Parents Everywhere: #NoHotPets

We implore you to be extra careful with regards to the many dangers surrounding them. Always keep in mind: Temperatures inside vehicles can climb rapidly, even with windows cracked open!  

If you have to ask "Is it TOO HOT to take them with me today?"  Chances are, you already know the answer is: YES! 

Here at Pet Country Estate, we proudly encourage responsible pet ownership!  If you cannot take your pets shopping with you, it's best to leave them in the cool comfort of your home.  For everyone's safety: PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE THEM IN A PARKED CAR for any length of time whatsoever!

Take the pledge:

Let’s have "NO HOT PETS" this summer!


Remember: Rising Summer Temps + Dogs in Cars = EXTREME DANGER!  Since dogs don’t have the ability to 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!

Each year, OSPCA Officers receive hundreds of "Pets in car" calls! 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, please contact the Police, or call your Ontario SPCA Branch at: 1-888-ONT-SPCA (668-7722).  Email: cruelty@ospca.on.ca

If we ALL do our part, we can ensure this unfortunate situation (& its' inevitable, but most AVOIDABLE fatalities) will never come to pass. Together, let's ensure that both Humans & Canines can truly enjoy those Lazy, Hazy "Dog Days" of Summer!
