North Haven police are reminding pet owners not to leave animals in the car after they responded to several reports of dogs left in hot vehicles Wednesday.
Police urged anyone who sees a dog along in a car to take down the vehicle’s make, model, color and plate and call local police or animal control.
If possible, you can also ask to have the owner of the car paged at the nearest building.
On a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a car can reach 100 degrees in just a few minutes, police said. Wednesday’s temperatures are predicted to reach the low 90s. For the full forecast, click here.
