A matter of highest importance

Mom and I came across the coolest (no pun intended) campaign today. Thought we would share it as it is a matter of highest importance. It's called "Don't leave me in here, it's hot" campaign.

As a bit of background, I wrote in my first book, Doggone Green: A Call to Action to Save Our Earth a chapter on avoiding doggie danger in the great outdoors. It was on "overheating." I explained that "warm weather dangers prevent me from running as many errands with Mom as usual; meaning I have to stay home in the warmer months so as to stay safe and cool. It's my nature to want to 'go' and keep her company (as we have a lot to woof about) as well as keep her safe. I have had to listen and 'stay' home ever so reluctantly."

According to United Animal Nations (UAN) "in the last two weeks alone:

  • A 14-year-old Golden retriever named Delta died in the car while her owner shopped at Costco on a 104-degree day in Frederick, Maryland.
  • In New York, a six-pound Maltese died in a 140-degree car while his owner went for a swim in a state park.
  • A Wisconsin woman left her pit bull in her car at Wal-Mart while she attended a court matter. Police broke the car window and tried to save the dog, but he died at the scene."

Bottom line, pass the word along; it gets hot in a car on a warm day. It can be just doggone dangerous. So better do as I do and just rest in the cool house under the ceiling fan and wait for a cooler day.

The UAN was founded in 1987. They focus on "bringing animals out of crisis and strengthening the bond between people and animals through a variety of programs, including emergency sheltering, disaster relief services, financial assistance and education."
