Keep Your Pets Safe in the Heat

Written by FM News 101 KXL on May 13, 2014

We may love to see the sun return but the heat may have a deadly impact on your pets.

When you pop into the grocery store for just ten minutes the temperature in your car is rising by nearly twenty degrees. Leaving your pet inside could be life threatening. If you see it happening you need to report it by calling 911 or animal services.

“Cause our officers are the ones to respond immediately in these kind of cases and ensure that animals are taken into safe custody”, says Mike Oswald, director of Multnomah County Animal Services.

He says if your pet is excessively thirsty or panting and is drooling or vomiting they may be suffering from a heat related illness.
