“Pouca coisa nos entristece mais do que ver um cão aflito. Hoje, oficiais foram chamados a um estacionamento onde um cliente viu um cão trancado no carro. Enquanto o dono estava fazendo compras na loja com ar-condicionado, seu animal estava sofrendo no calor sufocante dentro do veículo. Está 36 graus lá fora! Mesmo com os vidros da frente abertos, os policiais estimaram que a temperatura interna chegava a 65 grau.”
“No vídeo, a janela da frente estava aberta, mas o cão sufocava no banco de trás com o calor, mesmo com o vidro aberto. Os oficiais no local entraram em contato com o corpo de bombeiros para ajudar quando o cão foi retirado do veículo. O cão foi resfriado com água corrente de uma mangueira e foi dado água para beber. O cão está bem. O motorista do incidente está respondendo por Crueldade contra Animais.”

There is little that saddens us more than seeing a dog in distress. Today, officers were called out to a parking lot where a customer spotted a dog locked in a car. While the dog’s owner was shopping inside the cool, air-conditioned store, her animal was suffering inside the sweltering hot vehicle. It’s 97 degrees outside! Although the front windows were cracked, officers show that the temperature inside the car was 150 degrees. This month, we have responded to numerous calls of dogs trapped in hot cars. We know that dog owners love their pets, and aren’t intentionally trying to harm them, but people must know that temperatures inside the car can soar to scorching heights within minutes. The heat is extra tough for dogs because they can only cool themselves by panting and sweating through their paw pads. Please help us spread the word to NEVER leave pets inside of a hot car, and know that we will always respond to help these animals when you call 9-1-1!***UPDATE*** 6/17/2015 We felt that it was important to update this post to answer some of your questions about this video. At the time, there were two separate incidents of dogs left inside a hot car at the same location. In this video, the front window was down, but the elder dog was in the back seat and was getting overheated despite the window being down. The officers that were on scene called the Roswell Fire to respond when the dog was let out of the vehicle. The dog was cooled off with running water from a hose, and he was provided water to drink. The dog is doing well. The driver in this incident was charged with Cruelty to Animals. You may also view this story by going to 11Alive news link: http://tinyurl.com/o6odqt4
