As temperatures peak in the summer months, we are all at risk – including our pets. Did you know the temperature inside your vehicle can rise above 120 degrees in a matter of minutes? That’s even with the windows partially open. In just 15 minutes, your dog can suffer brain damage, heat stroke, suffocation or death.
Take a look at Oakland County Animal Shelter’s video to learn more.
If you see an animal locked inside a vehicle, we urge you to call your local police department or the Oakland County Animal Shelter immediately at 248-858-1090!
