If you see a dog stuck in a car during a hot day, here are 5 things you should do immediately:

  1. The first thing to do is call 911.
  2. The next step is to take down the car’s information. This includes the type of car it is and the license plate.
  3. The third step is to check nearby shops to find the owner. You can even ask the store to make an announcement.
  4. Next, wait with the dog until help arrives, be it the police or the owner.
  5. Last but not least, if help doesn’t arrive and you can’t find the owner, it’s legal to break the window in certain states. But this should be a last resort. Here are the states that allow this: Massachusetts, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Colorado, Florida, Arizona, and California.

If humans can’t handle it, why would a dog be any different? Please keep your pets in mind so you can have a happy, worry-free summer!
