NO NO NO Dogs In Cars!!!

Dog In Car in Boulder City, NV

Photo: (c) Can Stock Photo |

It’s soapbox time!!! I’m just ALL bent out of shape because someone left their dog unattended in their car today up at Albertsons.

This is a stock photo – so it wasn’t this dog…it was a yellow lab in the back of a “Jeep-type” car – so no roof and the poor dog was just burning up in the sun. And no water, just to make it worse.

NRS 574.195 says: “A person shall not allow a cat or dog to remain unattended in a parked or standing motor vehicle during a period of extreme heat or cold or in any other manner that endangers the health or safety of the cat or dog.” and “A person who violates a provision of [the above] is guilty of a misdemeanor.”

From a post I did last year about the My Dog Is Cool Website, you can download flyers here to put on someone’s windshield if you see an animal in a car.

But personally, I’m calling the police department to dispatch an officer, a fireman or animal control because they’re allowed to smash the window in and take the pet away from you.
