Animals In Print
The On-Line Newsletter

From 22 August 2007 Issue

Write Animal Wrongs

Reach millions of people by writing letters to the editor to your local newspapers about important summer-themed animal issues:

Remind people that dogs locked in parked cars can quickly suffer fatal heatstroke and brain damage. All companion animals should have it made in the shade during the summer months, with plenty of water and shelter from the sun—and they should never be left in cars, even “ just for a few minutes."

Dogs in Hot Cars

Dogs can suffer and die when left inside parked cars, even on mildly warm days. On a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a shaded car is 90 degrees, while the inside of a car parked in the sun can reach 160 degrees in minutes. Animals can succumb to heatstroke in just 15 minutes.

If you see a dog left alone in a car, take down the car's color, model, make, and license plate number and have the owner paged inside the store, or call local humane authorities or police. Do whatever is necessary to get the dog out of the car—his or her life may depend on it.

PETA offers leaflets that can be placed on vehicles to remind people never to leave unattended animals inside. For information on ordering PETA's "Don't Let Your Dog Get Hot Under the Collar" leaflet, please go to: 

Celebrity Simon Cowell stars in PETA's public service announcement (PSA) informing viewers of the dangers of leaving dogs in hot cars. You can help spread the message by contacting us at [email protected]  or 757-622-7382 for information on how to get the PSA aired on your local television stations. To view the PSA:
