Unfortunately we hear this type of news all too often – another pet lost because their owner locked them in hot car.
As we near the true “dog days of summer”, our Lucky’s B&B family felt it imperative that we share this vital tips that could lead you to saving a life.
First, did you know that temperatures above just 70 degrees is WAY TOO HOT to leave your furry friend? Yes!
We love all animals way too much to see this happen to any of them.
Here are just a few important tips to saving a life:
- Record information about the vehicle – or go so far as to taking photos with your phone. (License plate, model, make & color).
- Alert the management of the nearest business
- Call the police immediately – as well as animal control
- Stay with the animal until help arrives
This summer – or ANY day that climbs above 70 degrees – be aware of your surroundings. You could save a life!
In the state of New Jersey – it is a crime to leave animals locked in hot cars:
“A living animal or creature [cannot be] unattended in a vehicle under inhumane conditions adverse to the health or welfare of the living animal or creature.”
Take care and know the law.
