Don't leave your dog in your car!

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.
