– RSPCA said that 180 complaints were received by them about dogs being left inside vehicles.
Accordingly, dog owners who park their cars in the shade or leave their windows open should know that that is not enough to keep the dog cool. They remain at risk to heat distress. Dogs inside hot cars can die in less than ten minutes.
Just recently, one man was charged with animal cruelty after his dog was rescued from the hot car.
The dog was already drooling and panting heavily when they took him out of the vehicle. Passer-by called police after noticing the dog being left inside the car.
