The Albany County Law was recently passed and it says that police officers or citizens who respond to the dog in distress are allowed to remove the dog from the car when the owner cannot be found. After that, the dog owner will be paying a fine. The law also says that dogs or other animals cannot be confined inside a car when the conditions would threaten their health because dogs being inside the vehicle while it’s hot out could die in as fast as six minutes. When they are left inside the car during the cold seasons, the dog and other animals will suffer hypothermia.
The fine ranges from $150 to $500. The first amount is imposed for the first offense.
