Lollypop Farm is reminding pet owners about leaving pets in hot cars | Pets
Lollypop Farm is asking for your help to save animals from over-heating in parked cars during the summer.
When it is hot outside, the interior of a car heats up very quickly and can quickly reach fatal temperatures. A cracked window is not a solution either, as it does not provide adequate cooling to keep the pet safe. Pets left in hot cars even briefly can suffer from heat exhaustion, heat stroke, brain damage, and can even die.
If you see a pet in a car alone when the weather is hot, alert the management of the store where the car is parked. If the owner does not return promptly, dial 911 or contact the Humane Society Animal Cruelty Hotline at (585) 223-6500. Calls are treated confidentially.
