One in 25 People Have Broken Into a Stranger's Car to Rescue a Dog
Now that the summer is here, jackasses all over the country are going to start leaving their poor, sweet dogs locked in their cars. Sure, they MIGHT crack a window or park in the shade. They MIGHT.
--So what do you do when you walk by a car and see a dog inside, blazing hot, panting and miserable?
--Believe it or not, 4% of people say they've actually BROKEN INTO a stranger's car to rescue a dog. That's one in 25 people.
--Another 49% have called the cops. About one-third of people say they've seen a dog locked in a car on a hot day and didn't do anything about it.
--So you know, even if it's 70 degrees out, that's too hot to leave your dog in the car if the sun is shining. On an 80-degree day, even with the windows cracked, the temperature in the car can get to 102 in just 10 minutes, and 120 in 30 minutes.
