Kitimat humane society dealing with pets left in hot cars during heat wave

The Kitimat Community Humane Society shelter manager says many animals are being left in the heat.

The Kitimat Community Humane Society shelter manager says they’ve been dealing with several calls over the past couple of days of people leaving pets in their cars during this recent heat wave.

Maryann Ouellet said that there have been 15 calls regarding animals in super heated cars in the past two days.

She said even with a window cracked it can get too hot for your pet.

The cases, she said, involve people running into stores or into coffee shops to get a drink while their pet waits outside.

She said she and the RCMP dealt with one call on Tuesday where the dog, panting hard, may have been minutes away from collapsing.

The seven day forecast from Environment Canada shows the heat continuing well to next Monday, ranging from 28 to 32 degree Celsius.
