Dogs in Hot Cars Poster

“Sadly, we’ve seen a number of tragic cases over the years where dogs have died after being left inside a hot vehicle, and in most cases their owners were devastated and truly thought their dogs would be okay. It’s so important that people remember that ‘not long is too long’ when it comes to leaving your dog in the car, even if you only plan to be a few minutes.”

Since lockdown began on 23 March, the charity has received 330 calls with concern about animals in hot weather, and with temperatures set to rise to more than 30 degrees in some areas this week, the RSPCA is braced for hundreds more calls about animals at risk in the heat.
