You can help save abused, abandoned and injured animals in Scotland by making a monthly donation to the Scottish SPCA
Last year our animal helpline recieved over 1,000 calls regarding animals being left in hot cars.
It only takes a few minutes for a dog to overheat in a hot vehicle and leaving a window open or a bowl of fresh water simply is not enough.
Our message is clear: Don’t risk it.
Even on an overcast, warm day the tempratures inside a car can rise and cause heatstroke and even death to your dog.
Where possible, we urge you to leave your dog at home.
If you see a dog in distress please call our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
If you’d like to share our message you can request a poster from us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
