SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — We are already experiencing temperatures in the upper 90’s and we could break 100 degrees this weekend.
As we struggle to stay cool, Animal Care Services is urging San Antonio pet lovers to use caution with outdoor pets.
The intense heat means dogs are at a high risk for overheating.
ACS offers these tips to help keep pets cool.
Many people bring their dogs with them to run errands. The downside is that some will leave their pet in the vehicle.
If you see a pet locked in a hot car, ACS recommends that you take action by writing down the license plate number and having the owner paged inside the store. If that doesn’t solve the problem, call 9-1-1.
People who leave animals in hot cars could be charged with animal cruelty.
