Most people have no intention of bringing harm to their pets when leaving them in their vehicles. But in reality, that’s what often happens. Summer’s Heat is right around the corner. On average, the temperature inside a vehicle is about 15 to 20 degrees warmer than the outside temperature. Pet owners can be fined under state law if an animal is at risk.

In addition to causing permanent damage or even death to the animal, owners run the risk of being fined and having to appear in court for something, that according to Sedona Police Department Animal Control Officer Kris Billington, should be avoided.

“People get attached to their animals and want to take them everywhere,” he said. “But there’s no reason to take them if you’re going to the store or a place where animals aren’t allowed.”

    What about dogs in the back of a pickup. The bed of the truck gets very hot. No shade for the animals.
