In light of reading multiple reports of dogs dying (slowly cooked from the inside out) by being left unattended in cars here is a public service annoucements for all you mentally challenged and cruel morons.............DON'T TAKE YOUR DOG WITH YOU IF YOU DON'T INTEND TO STAY RIGHT WITH YOUR DOG.

I don't even let my dog outside in our big fenced in yard without supervising her, just exactly like you would a toddler.

What is it with people that bring their dogs along in a car and leave them? Are they nuts or just plain mean.

Dogs will even die if left outside too long in the heat..............god, don't get a dog or kitty if you're not going to care for him/her........they are not it's they are beings.

The body temperature of the animal will increase to the point where it is effectively boiled alive from the inside

- Ch Supt Mike Flynn

Again, god how stupid are people? In just three minutes of googling I've seen over a hundred cases of dogs being left to die in the heat...........what in sam hell is going on with humanity?

Don't just leave your dog, watch them, they are about as intellegent as a two year old child at most - when my kids were two I had to be on them like glue).

I don't leave my dog alone ever, I know exactly where she is at and what she is doing at all times.

Don't get a dog if you're not going to take really good care of him/her.

Boiling to death is a horrible, gruesome way to die.

The video above, I'de like to leave that guy in a car with a fur coat on for the same amount of time.

In one minute your car will become over 100F.

Your dog is wearing a fur coat.

No, don't bring them, leave the window cracked and a bowl of water

Don't bring your dog.............leave fido home in the air conditioning.

Now, what if you had a stoke, your wallet stolen, something else that detained you??????

Don't bring your dog shopping, don't leave them out in the yard in hot or cold weather.

Be nice.

It breaks my heart to see so many animals abused. If you can't be a responsible pet owner, you shouldn't have a pet. If anyone knows of an animal being neglected or abused, please report it and save a life!

You do know that dogs live outside don't you? They don't depend on you 100%, they can live without you hold their hands (paw) all the time.

Absolutely, grab that cell dial 911 and wait right there and fill out a police report.

Get involved.

See the video above I posted.

Some people are so friggin stupid and mean................what goes around comes around and they'll get theirs.

It's called Karma.

Dogs, babies, the elderly.
It seems like people just don't care who/what they leave in their car.

They don't necessarily live outside, they go outside as we do. With lots of shade and water they may be fine from the heat for a time just are we are. Put them in the sun, don't give them water, leave them in a closed
up car and that is abuse I don't care how you look at it. When we get a dog or kitty we should treat them
with care and love. Why have them if you are not going to help them - if that is the case maybe they
would be better on their own. I am sick of people abusing animals - one has to have a cold heart to do that!

I'm sorry but I disagree, I do not have a huge fenced in yard, I live in a townhouse with about a quarter acre. My dog, well, she tears up everything. It I am with her she knows not too but like a child, " if you give a mouse a cookie", she will take advantage of The alone time. So, I take her everywhere I go, I don't currently have a job so that's not really much traveling for me. At maximum she sits alone, with the Windows cracked, for no more than an hour. I do keep temperature in mind, so if it sunny and hot, ill return to the car quicker than usual. I keep a bottle of water with me, not in the car, on my person, so as not to allow it to get too hot in the car. I try not to leave her at home alone because she has abandonment issues as she was thrown from a moving vehicle before we got her.( come to think of it I don't understand why she likes the car as much as she does.)

Well, the point is, I don't have a fenced in yard, and I'm not fond of putting a muzzle on her, so she comes with me. Like I said, she spends no more than an hour (and that's in cool conditions) and I always return with water to cool her down and rehyerate her. Don't assume that everyone is a moron without a brain just because you see one or two stories about idiots who should have never had their pets in the first place.

Went back and read some of the posts that were written while I was writing this.

I do not have air conditioning as I live in the north Carolina mountains and my landlord company does not provide them, we really don't need them all that often, I bring my dog with me on hot days sometime so I can keep an eye on her and know when it is time to find a cool place to hang out, like my car, which does have ac. So if you see my dog in the car at wally world in the mountains of nc, then know that I am inside cooling myself down with free corporate ac and will return with water, and turn the ac on in my car for The dog on the ride home.

Unless your going to work, who really needs to spend more than an hour shopping for necessities. I live by this rule, if your going out, know what you NEED, get it and leave, unless of course its hot as fresh fecal matter outside and your stealing valuable ac time from the corporations that ruin The world.

I don't understand animal cruelty nor do I want to. If you are good to them they will love you unconditionally

Wow! Just two days ago, I went to my workout class...came out and walked to my car. In the parking lot...I kept hearing a muffled dog bark..I got in my car and drove around the shopping center parking lot. I finally found the SUV with a dog in the back. Virginia...90 degrees, must have been at least 120 in the vehicle, windows cracked 5 inches. I got out and was talking to the dog....then someone else came over then another lady came over and then a sheriff miraculously drove by and we flagged them down. The Sheriff check it out and then went into the restaurant and brought the guy out....I left after that, but OMG! That is absolutely cruel and uncalled for.

Sorry, no, the domestic dog is now dependent on man.........they are not wild wolves.

And with my dog, she is treated exactly like I would like to be treated if our roles were reversed.

It's called respect, it's called love.

We had a farm dog, Sugar and my A%$$ h*&%$ brother in law left her out in a "dog pen with dog house" in 30 below weather - her blanket froze, she had 12 puppies and dug a hole under her dog house.

I was 10, I was scared to stand up to my brother in law who I had to live with - and who beat me if I so much as looked at him the wrong way.

Sugar and her puppies were okay that long cold Missouri winter, but I begged him to just let them in the bathroom for a few nights until the weather warmed up. He wouldn't. I should have stuck up for Sugar, I should have stood up to the cruel, mean tyrant but didn't have the courage.

I would go out to feed her and watch her shiver and shake............her puppies crying.

Well now, I'm older and bigger and now I will stand up to anyone that abuses a dog, a child or someone weaker.

Well buddy, you insensitive person you, that was 48 years ago.

Now, my Lucy, she stays right by my side. She is treated like a member of our family. No dog pen, dog house, frozen blankets for her.

No, and by the way - dogs are smarter than you think............June 9th at approximately 10 AM C/T Lucy backed up to me keyboarding, which she does to get scratched on her back...........and in her gruffy little voice said, "outttttt"..................she talked. She didn't want to get scratched, she told me she had to pee.

Soooooooooooooo as man is evolving maybe so are our companion animals too.

And yes, my Lucy came from a puppy mill and was treated like a thing, a commodity for six years and than scheduled to be gassed when she was deemed "not useful or young enough".

Wanna know how to judge a person, watch how they treat their companion animal.

I'm so glad I married my husband, he is so nice to all of our dogs and cats we have had.

He's a real man, was also a excellent father..............a real man is kind, merciful and gentle.

And that looks like one loved and pampered beautiful kitty!

I have a 2.5yrs old 110lbs German Shepard and I watch him like a hawk on hot days.

In the summer he has no less than three 4L pails of water to drink out in the yard, I dump the pails every night and refill them fresh in the morning then again in the afternoon. He has 3 more pails of water in the house. Water is the key. He is also mostly black, he gets very hot. I also have some big fruit trees and out buildings/sheds so no matter what part of the day he has more than adequate shade. On the days I know I wont be making it home for at least 6 hours I leave his doggy door to the garage unlocked so if he really wants to he can go lay down on the nice cool cement floor (something I have caught him doing).

I simply can't take him into the firm when I go to work so he doesn't get supervised like a two year old but I love my dog so he gets spoiled like one! Also being 110lbs doesn't make for a lot of trips in the car unless it is mandatory. Living in a farming town of about a hundred people is a blessing, the vet lives like two streets down. He is considered open 24/7.

Great post to remind people of the dangers with animals and heat! S&F

Okay, what if....................what if you had a heart attack, a stroke, someone mugged you.......anything where you were detained?????

If you have a dog that tears stuff up than get that dog training. Can't afford training? You can afford a PC........Google how to train a dog, (they now even have friggin videos on how to train your dog out of anything).

My youngest son has trained our cat, Jack to come when he's called and sit for christ sake.

You can also borrow books from the library on how to train your dog out of tearing stuff up. I know for a fact that Park Districts have very very cheap dog training programs.

You're just making excuses.

No, dogs are like children.

If you're not going to be a good parent don't have kids or dogs (or cats). Although cats are more independent.

They do live outside though. Just because you keep your pet in your home doesn't mean it can't survive outside. Now I'm in no way sticking up for people that keep them locked up in cars to die, those people should be fined. Today I left my dog in my truck today while I was getting cash out of the atm and maybe gone 3-5 minutes, I came back to a note on my truck saying I was going to hell for I do to my dog. I did have the windows cracked and the truck was still running with the A/C on. I don't need to watch my dog every second of the day, and when I let him outside he stays in the yard (no fence). I reason to watch him all the time because he's not a child HE'S A DOG.

Personally I am going to worry about my own pets, and let others worry about theirs.
If I see one that is in danger, I will try to fix it. I will not call the cops.

The guy should not have had a dog..........the sheriff should have called, anyone should have called animal cruelty.

I have seen a couple dogs dead from heat exhaustion and it's not pretty - it's bad, it's cruel, it's again, a gruesome way to die.

And they are not things, they are beings.

Sometimes I wonder, because they can love unconditionally if they are not angels in disguise.

The guy should have been fined...........go out to eat? Then leave the dog at home!!!!

Well, you got involved and
for you.

I worked security at a casino for a short period of time and if we ever saw a child left in a car we immediately were authorized to break the windows to get the child out and call the police.

If we ever noticed an animal in a car we were supposed to call animal control and page the owner of the vehicle even in the extreme heat of Nevada but weren't allowed to make a forcefull entry. Even if the animal was going to die.

Of course humans are more important but still suffering is suffering.

I don't wanna argue your dog vs all dogs but they can and do live on their own all across the world. I've been to 14 different countries and all had wild domestic dogs.

Hey Dog owner and lover here.

Your dog does not need to go anywhere with you, it should be in the car only to go to the vet and thats it.

They are an animal not a piece of jewelry to be kept in your purse or bring around town with you.

Your dog wants to be in a yard not your car. It is against the law to have your dog in your car unrestrained.

Again I have several dogs, and am disgusted at dog owners that treat them like accesories. They do not want to ride around with you for your human errands. They want to be in a yard pooping, running and being a dog.

Stop treating dogs like humans.

Every now and then I will see this here in Texas.... Now most know how hot it can get in Texas during the summer. It's crazy..... But leaving your dog in a car that quickly heats up to oven like temps ( No exaggeration there).... Even for just a second, is just cruel...

Would you like to be locked in an oven "Just for a second"? I wouldn't and neither do they!
