While some of us may enjoy the heat, our four-legged family members may not. Our furry friends do not handle heat as well as humans, so we need to be aware of just how hot it may be in our pet’s environment. Pets are commonly left in a car or kennel that gets too hot, which can quickly make them suffer from heat stress or even death.

“But I cracked the windows…”

Every year we hear stories of pets that die from heatstroke after being left in a car, boat or RV. Even with the windows rolled down partially, the interior temperature of a car can reach above 114 degrees Fahrenheit in 10 minutes or less. Before long, a car can reach temperatures above 140 degrees during summer months. There are similar incidents with animal kennels.   View the symptoms and risks of heat stroke in your pets.


As these cases are becoming more common, some areas are issuing criminal charges or jail time to those that leave their pets outside or in cars during the scorching months. To avoid these charges people are leaving their car and RV air conditioning running, and kennel owners are strategically placing fans to keep the animals cool. It is still dangerous to a pet if left unattended. Recently, a kennel in Arizona had 28 dogs in their facility. One of the dogs had chewed the power cord of the AC unit, thus making it too hot in the enclosure, and led to the death of 20 of the 28 dogs in just a few hours. Police K9s also suffer the consequences of failed air condition units every summer. Are you going to take the chances of your AC not working?
