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!

The Oakland County Animal Shelter and Pet Adoption Center is in the midst of some very big, positive changes.
In the Fall of 2017, all of Oakland County’s shelter animals, staff and volunteers will move from their current home off of Baldwin Road in Auburn Hills, to Oakland County’s complex, next to the sheriff’s administration building, east of Telegraph.
The new 35,000 square-foot facility will have a much larger capacity and is expected to house 140 cats and 150 dogs.
