During warm weather remember to play it safe and don’t leave your dog or cat in the car, even on a seemingly cooler day of 68 degrees. Here are some scary examples of how quickly your car can heat up inside, making it very dangerous for pets left inside.

-On a 68 degree day, in 10 minutes your car can jump up 13 degrees to 81 degrees, and in 60 minutes your car can reach 115 degrees.

-On an 82 degree day, in 10 minutes your car can reach 95 degrees and within 60 minutes your car can reach 129 degrees.

-On a 90 degree day, in 10 minutes your car can reach 102 degrees and within 60 minutes your car can reach 136 degrees.

-On a 97 degree day, in 10 minutes your car can reach 109 degrees and within 60 minutes your car can reach 144 degrees.
