Reminder for Dog Owners - Do not leave your dog your car unattended

As the weather forecast looks like temperatures are set to rise this week its worth reminding dog owners of the dangers of leaving your dog in a car.
Many people think it's ok to leave their dog in the car if they're parked in the shade or the windows are open. But a car can become as hot as an oven, even when the weather doesn't feel that warm. When it's 22 degrees Celsius outside, the car could reach an unbearable 47 degrees within an hour. It's very dangerous and will cause your dog suffering and harm.
If you see a dog left in a car on a warm day, the simple advice is to dial the police on 999.
