Weigh In! Should It Be Legal to Break Into a Hot Car to Save a Distressed Dog?

Every year, especially in the hot summer months, dogs needlessly suffer and die, trapped inside parked cars. On a nice, 78-degree day, the temperature inside a parked car can reach up to 120-degrees within just a few minutes.

On a 90-degree day, the temperature inside a parked car can reach 160-degrees in just 10 minutes – the amount of time it takes to run inside the bank and make a deposit, to grab a snack from the convenience store.

Currently, only 16 states have laws on the books prohibiting leaving dogs in parked cars. And, only 14 of those states grant permission to law enforcement to enter a vehicle to save a dog.

  1. Of course it should be legal to save animals from hot cars! Decades ago my father left rabbits in a car for not long, and they died. He was probably talking with the person who gave them to him. He loved animals. It still makes me sad. Thanks for the stars – encouragement but above all thanks for all that you do to help the helpless animals. They have no voice and no vote. The animals and the environment need to have the status of minor children who have no vote and must be protected.
