“I left the window down for him” “I wasn’t going to be gone long” We’ve heard it all! The issue of owners leaving their pets in their vehicles during the hot summer months, putting animals’ safety at risk and even causing death, is an ongoing problem across Ontario. There is NO excuse for leaving a pet unattended in a vehicle.
The Ontario SPCA, in partnership with SPCAs and Humane Societies from across Canada, are launching the 2017 No Hot Pets campaign. The campaign’s goal is to educate the public on the dangers of leaving pets unattended in vehicles during the summer months.
This campaign may be launched in Canada but it is a great reminder for all of us as we hit the hot months.
Please pledge now NEVER to leave your pet in the car when it is hot out.
