CAR HEAT WARNING
Please note that the inside of your car during the Spring and Summer is still subject to intense heat build-up in the car, even if the windows are parially down. Do not, in any circumstance, leave a pet or child in the car for any period of time. What you might think to be a 10 minute trip for something quick can turn into a 30 minute or longer trip for you. During that time, your pet or, worse, your child can succumb to the heat due to lack of oxygen, dehydration, and heat stroke.
