If you love 'em, leave your dog at home!

It's not cool to leave your dog in a hot car--learn why cars heat up so quickly and why pets can't cool themselves off as quickly as humans. 

If you see a dog in distress, act quickly!

  • Write down the make, model and license plate and ask the store manager to quickly page the owner.
  • If you are not near a business and it's between 7:30pm and 5:00pm, call Missoula City-County Animal Control at 541-7387.
  • After hours, call 911.

Leaving a dog in a car for 'just a few minutes' may be too long. by the time a dog is exhibiting symptoms of heatstroke--lethergy, heavy panting, confusion--it's often too late. If you think your dog has heatstroke, call your veterinarian right away or go to the nearest pet emergency clinic.
