Animal Shelter Urges Pet Safety In Hot Weather

A spokeswoman for the Cheyenne Animal Shelter is urging pet owners to take a few precautions during hot weather, especially if the animals are kept outdoors.

Kate Miller says during the summer heat it’s especially important to make sure pets have plenty of water, and if they are kept outside, access to shade. Miller says it’s also a good idea to check on outdoor animals frequently to make sure they are coping with the heat, especially if they are not used to warm temperatures.

Miller also says that while it’s never a good idea to leave pets unattended for any period of time in your car, it’s especially important not to do so during summer weather. Miller says the temperature in a vehicle parked in the sun can quickly rise from 70 or 80 degrees to well over 100, well beyond what most pets can tolerate.
