Your pets feel the heat just like you do! Pets should never be left unattended in a hot vehicle. They can be put at risk of serious illness and possibly death. Temperatures inside a vehicle can quickly become much hotter than the temperature outside.
Fire Protection and Prevention Act allows firefighters to enter vehicles to rescue and remove animals in distress. If you see an animal in a hot car in distress and are concerned the animal's life is in danger, call 911 immediately. Do not enter the vehicle.
