The NYPD is urging residents not to leave their pets inside their cars during these dog days of summer after officers rescued a pup from a hot car in Queens.
The dog was left alone in a hot car for about an hour in the 112th precinct, the department tweeted Sunday. The back windows were slightly open and the rear of the car was in the shade, police say, but cops still had to rescue the pop.
They were able to enter the vehicle without breaking anything and pulled the animal to safety.
The precinct then tweeted a warning to residents that reads: “That’s no way to treat your best friend.”
Police say the 39-year-old woman who left the dog in the car was issued a summons.
