Cranbrook, BC (June 7, 2016) -- With the return of the hot weather, City of Cranbrook Bylaw Services has regularly been getting phone calls of dogs being left in hot vehicles. It is extremely important that pets are not left inside vehicles for any reason.
If you see a dog left in a vehicle, please contact the BC SPCA hotline at 1-855-622-7722.
Although the SPCA does not have the authority to remove pets from vehicles, they will attend the scene and contact the RCMP if the dog is in critical distress. The RCMP is the only body who can remove pets from vehicles.
Take good care of your dog; please do not leave them in your vehicle for any reason.
