Three dogs left in car perish from the heat

In another tragic case of dogs left to perish from the heat in a hot car, a 65-year-old Rhode Island woman faces felony animal cruelty charges after her three dogs died.

According to Fox News, the dogs were found in a vehicle in the parking lot of a grocery store in Jamestown. The car had been left running, however the air-conditioning was not operative and the windows were shut. Temperatures outdoors exceeded 95 degrees; no water had been left for the dogs

The dogs, two Labrador retrievers, one-four-years old, one only seven months old, and a four-year-old Keeshound, could not be revived despite the efforts of bystanders and police officers.

The dogs were pronounced dead at a nearby veterinary office.

If found guilty, the owner of the dogs, Ann Garnett faces a maximum prison sentence of five years.

This is the middle of the summer. Even if your dogs give you those sad-eyed looks because they want to go for a car ride with you, leave them home!

    My Dad always said: “Common sense is not so common” & “You can fix many things, but you cannot fix “stupid””…….

    I leave my horses in their paddocks and my dogs and cats home when I go out…… I know that my furbabies are more comfortable in their familiar surroundings. When I get home is when the fun begins!!!

    Precious treasures, I know you are in Heaven. Please look for MacKitty in Heaven and RIP amongst loving friends.

    Why do you take your dogs with you to do your grocery shopping on a hot day to begin with. Do you really think the dogs enjoy sitting in a hot car waiting for you? It’s one thing if you are running in to get a couple of items and it takes 5 or 10 minutes but to leave them so long that they could die like this is criminal! Sure, maybe the air failed but the dogs shouldn’t have been there to begin with!
