Important Message About the Care of Animals in Summer Heat
- Never leave an animal inside a hot vehicle. Temperatures can quickly soar in parked cars and a dog trapped inside can die from heatstroke within minutes, even if the car is in the shade with the windows slightly open, which has little-to-no-effect on lowering the temperature inside the car.
- Keep animals indoors. Unlike humans, dogs can sweat only through their footpads and cool themselves by panting, so even brief sun exposure can have life-threatening consequences. Anyone who sees animals in distress and is unable to help should note their locations and alert authorities immediately.
- Avoid hot pavement. When outdoor temperatures reach the 80s, asphalt temperatures can climb to 140 degrees causing pain, burns and permanent damage to dogs’ paws after just a few minutes of contact. Walk dogs on grass whenever possible and avoid walking in the middle of the day. Never run with dogs in hot weather—they’ll collapse before giving up, at which point it may be too late to save them.
