HSMO Reminds Public To Take Precautions For Pets In Hot Weather

St. Louis, MO (KTRS)  As the mercury rise, the Humane Society of Missouri reminds pet owners to watch out for our four-legged friends.

Humane Society officials it’s especially important not to leave a pet in a car.  Even on a 70 degree day, internal car temperatures can skyrocket to more than 100 degrees in just minutes, which can cause heat exhaustion and death for pets left inside these vehicles.

The Humane Society also reminds the public that harming a pet in this way is illegal, punishable by fines and imprisonment.

You are also urged to act immediately if you see a distressed animal in an unattended car. Call 9-1-1 and the Humane Society of Missouri Animal Cruelty Hotline at (314) 647-4400. A pet showing signs of distress such as heavy panting, unresponsive behavior, seizure or collapse needs immediate attention.
