Pets in Hot Cars = Nono!


While I don’t expect anyone to literally break a window, if you see a pet locking in a car, I do advise you to check the exhaust to see if the car is running, and if not you should use your best judgement about calling 911…

    1. I think that if I ever saw a child or pet that had collapsed in a locked in a hot car, I would immediately phone for help and try to figure out a way to break the window, but aside from that, I wouldn’t consider doing anything that drastic.
      Years ago, our older one accidentally pushed the lock button and locked her sister, who was strapped into her baby sear, in the car. Luckily, it was a chilly day in autumn, so her only suffering was due to being hungry and locked in with burgers (we’d gone to the park, which was accessible from the library parking lot, for lunch…. I called the police and they were kind enough to jimmy the lock for me without telling me how dumb that was. Fortunately, the baby’s only issue was not being able to get to those yummy-smelling burgers!


      1. Luckily for me, Hubby used to work for a car park company and knows how to jimmy a lock, so could get into a vehicle without causing damage. I’ve mentioned before that he did this to retrieve my friend’s car keys when she’d locked them inside and she told me to keep him as he was useful (so I did).

      2. My husband knows how to do that sort of thing, too. Alas, he was at work the one time our 3-year-old locked her baby sister in the car, so I called the police. Thankfully, it was 90 outside!

    1. If the car wasn’t running, with the AC on, I’m not sure what I would do, but suspect my actions would depend on how the pet looked… breaking a window seems overly drastic, but if the dog or child looked like they were in dire straights, I might try to do that… that said, I don’t think vehicle windows are designed to break easily.
