5 Lifesaving Tips About Pets Locked in Hot Cars

5 Lifesaving Tips About Pets In Hot Cars, California’s ‘Right To Rescue’ Law

When it’s 90 degrees outside, your vehicle can quickly reach 160 degree inside.


5 Lifesaving Tips About Pets In Hot Cars, California's 'Right To Rescue' Law

Leaving a pet alone in a hot car is something that touches a lot of nerves. And, rightfully so. The inside temperature of a vehicle can jump up to 123 degrees in just an hour – and that’s when it’s only 80 degrees outside, according to the National Weather Service.

“[O]n a 90-degree day, interior temperatures can reach as high as 160 degrees in less than 10 minutes,” according to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

Just this week, a young pup was rescued from a 133-degree vehicle in Southern California during the season’s first heat wave. As the summer gets into full swing, and plenty more heat waves are sure to be on their way, here are five things to know about pets in hot vehicles, and how you can potentially save their lives:

1) It only takes minutes.

According to PETA, dogs trapped inside of hot vehicles can succumb to heatstroke in just minutes. That’s even if the car isn’t parked in direct sunlight. Dogs don’t sweat like humans do, and can only cool themselves by panting.

2) Know the symptoms of heatstroke.

“If you see a dog showing any symptoms of heatstroke—including restlessness, heavy panting, vomiting, lethargy, and lack of appetite or coordination—get the animal into the shade immediately,” PETA says.

3) Get the pup water – but make sure it’s not ice-cold.

You can lower a symptomatic dog’s body temperature by providing the dog with water, applying a cold towel to the animal’s head and chest, or immersing the dog in tepid (not ice-cold) water. Then immediately call a veterinarian.

4) You have the ‘Right to Rescue’ in California.

In January, a new California law — called the “Right to Rescue” law — went into effect, allowing for citizens to rescue pets from hot vehicles. The law allows Californians to rescue pets left in cars if an animal seems to be in distress from the heat or lack of ventilation, including by breaking the vehicle’s window, without fear of prosecution or civil liability.

5) It’s important to keep in mind that in order to receive legal immunity under the ‘Right to Rescue’ law, a person must comply with all of the following requirements (Info via Office of Assemblyman Marc Steinorth):

  • Determine the car is locked or there is no other reasonable method to remove the animal from the vehicle
  • Have a reasonable and good faith belief that the animal is in imminent danger if not immediately removed
  • Contact law enforcement prior to entering the vehicle
  • Use no more force than necessary to enter the vehicle
  • If the person does enter the vehicle, the person must remain nearby with the animal in a safe location until law enforcement arrives. The person may not leave the scene.

Snake Safety

Trails: With the beautiful weather we are experiencing, you may find yourself wanting to take a hike on some of the convenient trails provided by the Del Sur community. Before you hit the trails with the family here are some items to keep in mind.

  • Be Rattlesnake Safe:

With the coming of warmer weather conditions, snakes of many species are through hunkering down, making human encounters with these elusive creatures more likely. Although most native snakes are harmless, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) recommends steering clear of the venomous rattlesnake – and knowing what to do in the event of a strike. Rattlesnakes are widespread in California and are found in a variety of habitats throughout the state from coastal to desert. They may also turn up around homes and yards in brushy areas and under wood piles. Generally not aggressive, rattlesnakes will likely retreat if given room or not deliberately provoked or threatened. Most bites occur when a rattlesnake is handled or accidentally touched by someone walking or climbing. For what to do if you encounter a rattlesnake, please clink on the link which will take you to the California Department of Fish website.

Vivian Chung was recently recognized as the 2017 Youth of the Year at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego (BGCGSD) 4S Ranch Branch. Each month throughout the year the club recognizes one or two students who have demonstrated excellence in their character, leadership, academic success, and healthy lifestyle choices. At the end of the school year, one of these students is chosen as the Youth of the Year. “At the end of the school year we recognize these students and announce our Youth of the Year award,” explained Emily Mitchell, 4S Ranch Branch Manager. “This year we had three students share speeches they wrote about the Boys & Girls Club.”

“From the first time I walked through the Boys & Girls Club double doors when I was six years old to now, the same feeling of comfort and security washes over me,” Vivian said in her speech. “This is a facility where I can express myself freely and feel safe at the same time. A place with staff who I can always talk to and not be judged, and, most importantly, a place where there is someone to always push me to thrive, not only as a better student, but as a well-rounded person of exemplary character.”
