You are reminded to never leave your pet in your vehicle this time of year.
Police had to rescue a dog from a hot vehicle this week in Fergus.
The dangerous situation was prevented when concerned citizens contacted the OPP.
Even if your car is parked in the shade with the windows opened slightly, it can still turn into a death trap for dogs in very little time.
If you need more information about your pet and the hot weather, contact the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals or the Stratford Perth Humane Society.
