The GSPCA team have been out to a number of vehicles with reports of dogs locked inside with little or no ventilation.

As the weather become increasingly warmer, people in Guernsey are being reminded not to leave their dogs alone in a car on a warm day.

Many people may think that it’s ok to leave a dog in a car on a warm day if the windows are left open or they’re parked in the shade, but the truth is, it’s still a very dangerous situation for the dog.  Steve Byrne, GSPCA Manager said:

“It can get unbearably hot in a car on a sunny day, even when it’s not that warm.  When it’s 22 degrees outside, the temperature inside a car can soar to 47 degrees within an hour.”
