Leaving Pets In Parked Cars

Leaving Pets In Parked Cars 

We all love the sun and so far this summer it’s been keeping a very low profile.

Changes are predicted, there are sunny days ahead. When they arrive the reports of pets locked in cars and enduring stifling heat will soon follow. Don’t assume that leaving a window ajar or parking under a tree will significantly impact on the temperature within the vehicle.

If you are concerned for the wellbeing of an animal confined in a car on a warm day your first port of call is the Animal Welfare Department at your local council, their details are found on www.uspca.co.uk. They can liaise with the PSNI to identify the owner and have the animal released from jeopardy.

REMEMBER…. LEAVING PETS IN PARKED CARS IN SUMMER IS PUTTING THE ANIMAL AT RISK OF DEATH AND THE OWNER AT RISK OF PROSECUTION.
