    * You May as Well Leave Your Dog in an Oven *

    Today see's the launch of our #hotcarskilldogs campaign.

    Did you know that more than one in 10 people know of a dog that has come to harm left in a parked car in hot weather? What's even more shocking is that almost half of us (48%) mistakenly believe it is ok to leave a dog in a car if counter-measures are taken (window open or parked in shade). Sadly over a quarter of UK dog owners admit to leaving their dog alone in parked cars, and AA call outs to rescue dogs locked in parked cars have increased by 50% in past six years!

    So, here are the cold hard facts:

    Under 20 minutes in a hot car can prove fatal to a dog should its body temperature exceed 41°C. As the temperature inside the car rises, in just a matter of minutes, the dog's suffering will become evident through excessive panting, whimpering or barking. This will develop into a loss of muscle control and ultimately the kidneys will cease to function, the brain will become irreversibly damaged and the heart will stop.

    Make a difference...

    Please share our hard-hitting video far and wide, help us make as many people as possible aware of the damaging affects leaving a dog in a car can have.
