Summer is almost here and temperatures are rising. Your parked car can be a dangerous place for your pet. Even on cloudy summer days with the windows down a couple inches, the inside of your car can reach over 100 degrees in just minutes. While the weather may appear comfortable outdoors, the buildup of heat inside your car can kill your pet. Pets can die of heatstroke or suffer brain damage within minutes.

Don’t take a chance with your pet’s life. Keep them safe and cool this summer. This message is brought to you by Animal Services. For more information, contact Animal Services at 360-352-2510 or visit
