In Merrimack, New Hampshire, two golden retrievers were rescued from a hot vehicle where inside temperatures registered at 128 degrees. The outside temperature at the time was 91 degrees. A shopper at the Merrimack Outlets spotted the two dogs panting heavily in a car in the parking lot with the windows only slightly ajar.
According to New Hampshire.com, Samuel Frackleton, 22, of Westford, Mass., faces charges of two counts of leaving animals in a motor vehicle on Monday. An animal control officer freed the dogs; both were safe. The golden retrievers were taken to the Merrimack Police Department and released to another member of the family.
Frackleton was released on his own recognizance and ordered to appear in Merrimack District Court July 12.
It’s no secret that our dogs enjoy going for car rides, but on hot summer days, isn’t it best to leave your friend comfortably home with either a treat or a toy?
