It happens every year: Otherwise loving/caring dog owners leave their pets in vehicles during these hot summer months, putting their animals’ safety at risk and even causing death. There's simply NO EXCUSE for this ongoing problem. See an animal in distress? If you think may be suffering from heat exhaustion and the owner cannot be located quickly, contact the police or your local Ontario SPCA Branch.  Email:, or call 1-888-ONT-SPCA (668-7722) and if possible: DO NOT break any car windows as shards of glass may injure them.  

If you're wondering: "Is it TOO HOT to take them with me today?"  The answer is: YES!  If you cannot take them with you, it's best to leave them in the cool comfort of your home. Even if it's a relatively mild 21 celcius, the inside of your vehicle can heat up to a sweltering "32" within 10 minutes and it is NOT OK to say: "I left the windows cracked open".  Temperatures can (and often do) result in tragic deaths that are 100% avoidable!


We'd be happy to discuss alternatives such as Doggie Daycare.  Heat stroke should be avoided at all costs. For more information and recognize the signs, we encourage you to read this informative article from RVT Lexy Marcellus.  Click HERE for de-tails, stay hydrated (wear sunscreen) and let's all do our part to ensure Summer Fun for everyone (both Humans & Pets!) Please share #NoHotPets! within your own personal & professional social media networks with Pet Parents everywhere, and remember to be extra careful with regards to the many dangers surrounding them year-round. Once again:


(Temperatures inside vehicles can climb rapidly, even with windows cracked open)
