Summer Heat Warning!

Hot weather poses many dangers to pets, including hyperthermia or heat stroke. Heatstroke most often occurs because a pet is left in a parked car, isn't provided with adequate shade and water, or is allowed to exercise too strenuously in hot weather. 

Follow these steps to keep your pet safe:

  • NEVER leave your pet in a car, even with the windows cracked or parked in shade. Anytime the outside temperature is over 70, the inside of the car can reach dangerous levels. On a 90-degree day, the temp inside the car can rise to 110 degrees in 10 minutes and 120 degrees in 20 minutes!
  • Dogs often don't know when to quit when they're having fun- it's our responsibility to limit their play in hot weather. Walk them only during the cooler hours of the day.
  • Don't allow pets to walk on the hot pavement where their feet can be burned.
  • Keep pets indoors during extreme heat. If they must be outdoors, be sure they are completely under shade.
  • Pets require more water to stay cool in the summer. Keep water dishes full, fresh, and in the shade.
