Someone, either intentionally cold-hearted and cruel or horribly ignorant, left a young puppy inside of a parked vehicle in Riverside, California on Wednesday. By the time that officers with the Riverside County Department of Animal Services arrived, it was 133-degrees inside of the car.
Officers were nice enough to unlock the doors of the white sedan that held the black and white puppy…the owner, whose identity has not been released, did not have any windows broken out by the two officers who rescued the pup.
The puppy was taken to a veterinary clinic and provided with a cool bath and time in front of a fan – the staff was able to bring her temperature down (it was over 103-degrees when she was rescued), reported the Press-Enterprise.
No word on whether or not the owner will be getting the puppy back.
This puppy was fortunate – she was rescued before the unthinkable happened. Please be on alert in parking areas and notify the police if you see a dog or puppy who has been left inside of a parked car. To the owners who haven’t paid attention to the repeated warnings – DO NOT LEAVE PETS IN PARKED CARS.
