Don't leave your dog in your car!
Now that the weather is getting hotter, we'd like to remind people not to leave dogs in cars – even 'just 5 minutes' can be fatal.
When the temperature is 20 degrees outside, in just 10 minutes the inside of a car can reach 27 degrees and can get to an unbearable 47 degrees within the hour.
Leaving the windows open and parking in the shade will not stop a dog overheating and it can take just a few minutes for a dog to die of heat stroke.
If anybody sees a dog in a car, please report it to the council dog warden or police who can decide on the course of action.
