Pledge To Never Leave Your Pet In a Hot Car

Pets in a Hot Cars

Leaving pets locked in cars is never safe, but when the weather gets warmer, it can be deadly. Pets can't withstand high temperatures—they can cause irreparable organ damage and even death.

It doesn't have to be that warm outside for a car to become dangerously hot. When it's 80 degrees Fahrenheit outside, the temperature inside your car can heat up to 99 degrees Fahrenheit within 10 minutes. And, rolling the down windows has been shown to have little effect on the temperature inside a car.

It may take only minutes to save a life. Pledge now to never leave your pet in a hot car.
