    We've talked a lot about the problems heat like this can cause people, but what about our four legged friends?

    People who leave their pets in certain places could face charges.
    What kinds of places are we talking about?
    A lot of people like to take their animals for a ride in the car...but they don't have anywhere to put them when they need to stop for a minute...and that is when they leave them in the car.
    And in some cases that can spell danger for everyone involved.
    On a warm summer day cars can reach up to and even more than 100 degrees inside.
    Animal control officers in Marion County say they've received several complaints in the past few days about animals locked in cars while their owner is inside a store shopping.
    In one instance the animal was dead by the time crews arrived on scene.
    They say the problem is even with the windows down, pets can still suffer.
    In warm weather, it only takes six minutes for an animal to die in a car.
    For that reason Animal control supervisor of Marion County says if you leave your pet in a car or outside without shade or water, you could face some pretty serious charges.
    “We definitely do ticket and charge the person who owns the animal or the person with the animal in the car. They would be charged with neglect and then would be prosecuted” says Lilabeth Crosby of Marion County Animal Control.
    Crosby says that if you would see any animal locked in a car, especially on a hot day, take down the license plate number and go into the store or restaurant and have that person paged. If that doesn't work, call the police or animal control

    Dear Srini,:hiya

    Read about these shocking instances of pet neglect.How can folks be so careless or ignorant.Why do they take the trouble of carting them along ....they could have been left at home.
    Here in Chennai, you know how it is in May ...we're going through Khatri ..the sun is at its hottest ....our pets stay indoors along with us in the bedroom most of the time with the AC on. Some folks think it is outrageous...we don't, If the AC is on and we're in the room what is the objection to our dogs being there I fail to comprehend.
    The whole idea of rearing pets and nurturing them gets negated if one were to chain these poor things out in the sweltering heat.In fact it is safer even in our interests to have dogs indoors all the time for security.They are vulnerable if left alone outdoors as the risk of being poisoned by undesirable elements is very strong I'm speaking from my Dad's experience as his favourite Doberman met with a gruesome end .
    We have certain areas in the house where entry for them is barred so everything is in order and there are certain areas where they have free access so everybody lives in peaceful co-existence !! They have a toilet area set aside for them too.We line the floor area with newspapers and they do their job there when they can't go out at night. It is easy to clean when they are paper trained.Rearing dogs is time consuming when as puppies you have to train them Once that's done everything works like clockwork and we enjoy each other's company.

    warm regards

    Dear Sriniketan,

    That was very informative.

    I too fail to understand how can anyone be so ignorant and careless. Its sad to know that these friendly beings have to suffer.

    love,
    anu
