Hot Cars Can Kill
August 2nd, 2017 - Police & the Community

The hot weather and humidity contiues, and leaving your pets for a brief time in a hot environment can be life threatening.

After reaching a body temperature of 41°C (106°F), it doesn’t take long for a pet to begin suffering irreparable brain damage or death.

Even on a mild day, with the windows open and parked in the shade, the temperature in a vehicle can rapidly reach very dangerous levels.

Your pets are just as important as your valuables!

If you spot an unattended pet in a vehicle that appears to be suffering from heat exhaustion call 10-SPCA (7722),1-888-668-7722 or 9-1-1.
