There are no good reasons to leave a pet unattended in a vehicle
Parked in the summer heat, cars act as an oven and the temperatures inside can reach a deadly point very quickly. Even with the windows rolled down, pets can overheat in a matter of minutes.
As the weather gets warmer, every year without fail, the HBSPCA receives countless calls regarding pets left unattended in vehicles. If your car will be unattended for any period of time, leave your pet at home – it’s not worth the risk. There are no good reasons to leave a pet unattended in a vehicle.
If you see an animal unattended in a vehicle, report it – it could save a life: call (905) 574-7722 ext. 401, or 911.
