NEVER LEAVE A PET IN YOUR CAR!*
- Cracking your windows doesn’t stop the heat from rising.*
- Most of that temperature increase is within the first 30 minutes.
- A pet’s temperature will rise approximately 40°F in an hour even on a relatively cool, 72°F day.*
- Cars can reach 120°F in a matter of minutes on a hot day.
- Pets can succumb to heatstroke even when the car is in the shade.
- Leaving the air conditioning on and the car running doesn’t guarantee your cat’s safety.
- Leave your pet at home on hot days.
