On Tuesday, three police officers with the Clearwater Police Department rescued a distressed dog from a vehicle in a Holiday Inn & Suites parking garage. According to the department, staff at the hotel reached out for help after hearing a dog “bark and howl” from inside of a vehicle which was parked in their garage.
In a release, the Florida authorities recounted what the officers found upon arrival:
Officers found the car was locked with the windows all the way up. They had to break one of the windows to pull the dog out of the hot car. They gave it water to drink and dabbed water on its head to try to cool it off.
And described the dangerously hot conditions inside of the vehicle that the dog was rescued from:
When Pinellas County Animal Control arrived about 10 to 15 minutes later, the temperature inside the car was still 94.6 degrees after having been open for some time. It’s safe to say the temperature inside the vehicle while the dog was still in it was well over 100 degrees.
The case has been turned over to the Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
Good work officers!
