Denver Animal Protection Warns Residents About Dangers of Leaving Pets Unattended in Hot Vehicles

Since the beginning of 2018, DAP has received 135 calls regarding dogs left inside vehicles during extreme temperatures. Never lean an animal in a hot car. On a warm day, the temperature inside a vehicle can reach 120°F in a matter of minutes – even with the windows cracked. If you see a dog in a hot car immediately call 311 and familiarize yourself with the Good Samaritan law that provides legal immunity for people who break a car window to save an animal. More info from Denver Animal Protection.
