How to help a pet locked inside

There are some steps you can take to help a dog that has been left by its owner in the vehicle. You should follow these tips to make sure that you can find the owner as soon as possible to retrieve their pet.

Step #1: Take note of the vehicle’s make, model, and licence plate to be able to identify which vehicle it is.

Step #2: Go to the nearest business or businesses to announce that someone forgot their pet inside their vehicle. They will return to the vehicle and get their dog out of the heat.

Step #3: If you can’t find the owner, you should call the non-emergency number and wait by the vehicle until the police or animal control come to the vehicle.
