It’s pretty common knowledge already that dogs cannot be left inside a car parked under the hot sun. Even if the windows are already cracked open a bit, there is not enough fresh air that blows in to prevent the interior from heating up like an oven. Dogs are helpless in these circumstances.
If they are left too long inside the vehicle, there is a good chance that they will get dehydrated or have a heat stroke. When this happens, the situation could become fatal. This is why some people take it into their own hands to do something to help the trapped pups quickly, even if it means breaking someone’s window.
Scott Pore is a volunteer at a Kansas shelter. When he went to their local Home Depot one day, he noticed something at the car park that broke his heart. Inside one of the cars was a tiny pup, crying in his crate. It was a hot summer day, and although the window was dropped open a bit, the animal lover could feel the hot air inside the vehicle.
He knew that the young dog was suffering, and every minute that passed added more to his ordeal. Scott called the cops right away. But he had also decided that he would take action himself if they took long. Thankfully, though, the police officers rushed over immediately.
The cops tried to find the owners, but since witnesses said that the pup had already been trapped inside for almost an hour, they couldn’t wait any longer. They forcibly opened the front door. They took the puppy out, brought him to the shade, and gave him some water.
The owners eventually came out, and the puppy was returned to them. They were ticketed for unlawful treatment of an animal. A judge will decide later on whether their pet should stay with them.
Thanks to the concern of a kind man, and the swift action of the Kansas cops, the puppy did not suffer a worse fate.
