​Pets in Hot Cars: “Not long is too long”
As temperatures rise, it’s important to remember that hot cars can be dangerous for pets. The Columbia Animal Services asks for the public's help to save lives as temperatures become too warm. Never leave a pet in a parked car in warm weather, even for short periods with the windows partially rolled down. On a 82 degree day outside, the temperatures inside a parked car can soar up to 95 degrees in 10 minutes and up to 115 degrees within an hour. Pets trapped inside hot cars can succumb to heatstroke within minutes. If you see a pet in distress in a hot car, take immediate action and dial 911.
