Hot Cars are Death Traps for Dogs

Sometimes people take their dogs along on errands but leave them in the car. This practice can be deadly.

A little heat outside a car can quickly make it very hot inside. On a summer’s day of only 85 degrees Fahrenheit, for example, even keeping the windows slightly open won’t stop the inside temperature from climbing to 102 degrees in 10 minutes, and to 120 degrees in 20 minutes.

A dog whose body temperature rises to 107-108 degrees will within a very short time suffer irreparable brain damage – or even death.

RedRover’s fliers and posters can save animals’ lives by reminding people that it is dangerous and deadly to leave a dog in a hot car – even for “just a minute.”
