“TOO HOT FOR SPOT" - DON'T LEAVE DOGS IN HOT CARS
 
The summer heat has arrived and Park County Sheriff Scott Steward  reminds residents it takes only minutes for a pet left in a vehicle on a warm day to succumb to heatstroke and suffocation.  Every year, dogs suffer and die when their guardians make the mistake of leaving them in a parked car—even for “just a minute”—while they run an errand. 
 
“Most people do not realize how hot it can get in a parked car on a warm, summer day” commented Sheriff Steward.  “On a 78 degree day, temperatures in a car parked in the shade can exceed 90 degrees -- and hit a scorching 160 degrees if parked in the sun.  Even when the outside air temperature is in the 60s, temperatures inside some vehicles can reach the danger zone on bright, sunny days.  Many experts recommend not leaving pets in parked cars even for short periods if the temperature is in the 60s or higher.”
 
Rolling down a window or parking in the shade doesn't guarantee protection either, since temperatures can still climb into the danger zone. Animals can sustain brain damage or even die from heatstroke in just 15 minutes. Beating the heat is extra tough for dogs because they can only cool themselves by panting and by sweating through their paw pads. 

If you see a dog left alone in a hot car (whether in the city or county), take down the car’s color, model, make, and license plate number.  Have the owner paged in the nearest buildings, or call the Park County Sheriff’s Dispatch Center at 307-527-8700 and an officer will be sent to evaluate.   Have someone keep an eye on the dog.  Don’t leave the scene until the situation has been resolved.
