To all of you that think you are doing a service check 1st to see if the windows are down and the dog has water. This was done to me and of course the people that called and harrassed me in the parking lot took off as soon as they saw the police lucky for them since they would have ended up in trouble not me. Most people that take pets in the car with them consider them part of the family and they are treated better than alot of peoples kids. Trust me MAX is!

I saw a dog in a vehicle in the summer & immediately called the police. They never came as animal control was closed. That is dumb!!!!

I have not seen / do not recall either of these. Most people around here are careful about these things. If anyone did, that person will be in trouble with law enforcement and the incident will be on TV local news.

Well, it's not a great thing to leave animals in the car, they really should just be left at home, but THEY ARE NOT CHILDREN. Unless you have some genetic abnormality, YOU DID NOT GIVE BIRTH TO THEM!!! Stop treating animals on the same level as people. They shouldn't be abused, but they aren't human and don't have the same rights.

Jumping off my soapbox.

I have never seen any children, but I have seen pets left in a truck many times! I don't see how people can be so cruel to leave a pet in a truck or car when it is so hot here in florida!

I see it all the time with pets but don't recall seeing a child left alone. Your pet is also your child. Take responsibility.
