Increase in calls for dog’s left in vehicles during hot weather:

With the extended heat wave Shelburne experienced during the past week, Shelburne Police had a significant increase in calls for service in regards to dogs being left in parked vehicles. The Shelburne Police would like to remind everyone that it takes only a few minutes for excessive heat to build up in a car which could endanger your dog’s health or even its life. Be sure to keep this in mind before travelling with your dog for any reason. If you must travel with your dog be sure to have a plan in place for the dog in case you must park the vehicle unattended for any reason. The plan should include having someone available to look after the dog as well as having water available for it. In fact, the OSPCA on its website recommends dogs never be left unattended in a vehicle. Under certain circumstances charges could be laid under the criminal code, the dog owner’s liability act or the SPCA.
