With temperatures nearing 100 on Monday, and extreme temperatures continuing throughout the week, the Humane Society of Missouri asks pet owners to remember the following reminders and advisories for pets.
Any time the temperature is above 70 degrees…
- NEVER leave a pet in an unattended car. Animals left in hot cars can die in just minutes.
- Keep pets inside if possible. If a pet must be outside, make sure they have access to continuous shade and fresh water.
It’s easy to remember: 70 Degrees and Over, Don’t Take Rover!
If you should see a pet in distress or in an unattended car, please call the local authorities and the Humane Society of Missouri Animal Cruelty Hotline at 314-647-4400.
