Leaving your pet in the car is not an option, especially if you live in a warm climate. The interior of a vehicle with closed windows steadily grows warmer as the sun heats the air more and more. Since the heated air cannot escape through the closed windows, the inside of the vehicle can easily reach extremely dangerous levels.

Veterinarian, Dr. Ernie Ward, tried it out himself.  Watch how hot it gets while he’s sitting in a parked hot car and you will understand why it is never a good idea to leave a pet unattended in a vehicle.
