How to keep your pets safe during the warmer temperatures


As temperatures heat up over the next few days, we need to keep in mind our fuzzy friends.

The US National Weather Service says, "Please monitor your pets closely, especially across inland areas, as they are not acclimated to the warmer temperatures yet!"

Pet Heat Safety
- Limit exercise on hot days, especially during peak heating
- Provide ample water and shade
- Watch out for hot pavement - if it is too hot for you, it is too hot for them!
- Monitor for signs of heat illness: rapid panting and excessive tiredness
- Never leave a pet unattended inside a vehicle - a cracked window is not enough and is not safe!
