Don't Leave Pets in Hot Cars!

Release: 22 Jun 2010 by Orange County Animal Services

With temperatures reaching the high 90s, Orange County Animal Services is aggressively cracking down on pets left unattended in cars.  Pet owners can face a civil citation for neglect in the amount of $265 and additional criminal charges by law enforcement.

This year already, Animal Services has responded to several calls regarding dogs left inside unattended vehicles. Even before temperatures climbed to what they are today, a dog died in a theme park parking lot after being locked in a hot car for hours. Cases similar to this happen all too frequently.

Animal Services recommends every pet owner be familiar with the following dangers of leaving a pet inside a hot car and take precautions.
