At just 72 degrees, the temperature inside a car can rise to more than 100 degrees in a short amount of time, making it dangerous to leave pets in vehicles, warned Galax Animal Control Officer Veronica Bryant.
“As warm weather approaches, I want to make people aware of the dangers of leaving pets in cars, because it can get hot very quickly,” she said. “Some aren’t aware that dogs can get heat stroke like we do.”
Bryant averages about 15 to 25 calls per year on animals that are in danger due to being left in parked cars.
