Bystanders at a pet store rescued a dog crying inside an extremely hot vehicle.

A group of bystanders heard a dog whimpering in a car parked in the scorching heat and came to his aid.

A woman rushed into a pet store in Halifax, Canada, claiming that her dog was trapped in a hot car. Erin Rowe didn’t waste any time in dialing 911 and attempting to free the dog, who was “100% in distress” and confined to a small travel carrier with limited ventilation.

“I was absolutely devastated that someone still does that in this day and age, despite all of the warnings.” As a result, I leapt into action. “It was like having my own child, my own dog,” Rowe explained.

Someone was able to unlock the car window by reaching into it and pressing the unlock button. They took the dog into the store to cool him down.

After about 30 minutes, the dog’s owner returned to the car, and Halifax Regional Police issued her a summary offence ticket with a $700 fine.

 

Rowe believes the owner has learned a valuable lesson. “To think that people still do that in this day and age is just devastating to me,” she said. Rowe hopes that dog owners will leave their dogs at home as the region prepares for a heat wave.
