EVANS, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Evans Police Department is reminding shoppers to leave their pets at home during the extreme heat and humidity.
Police say they have recently had several calls about people leaving their pets inside vehicles.
Authorities are reminding residents that pets can develop hyperthermia very quickly, which can lead to heat stroke. If unattended, the pet may collapse, have a seizure or even go into a coma and eventually die.
If you see a pet left unattended in a vehicle, notify your local police agency immediately.
