Another day, another case of dogs left in a hot vehicle.

Victoria Police tweeted on Thursday, July 5th, imploring pet owners to not leave their dogs in the car when it is hot out, after they responded to a call about two dogs in distress in a vehicle.

Officers were able to rescue the animals after determining that they had been left in the vehicle by themselves when “the temperature was approximately 38 °celsius on the seat and 32 °celsius in the dogs’ snout”, according to the tweet.

Animal Control now has the pets.

If you see a dog in a hot car….

Remember that it is illegal for the public to break a vehicle window to help an overheated animal.

If a window has been cracked open, the BC SPCA recommends trying to give water to the pet, or use a “battery-powered fan from a dollar store” to circulate air.

The BC SPCA Provincial Call Centre is open seven days a week, Monday to Friday from 9 AM to 5:30 PM, and Saturday and Sunday 9 AM to 5 PM.
