The Weyburn Humane Society board members are warning Weyburn residents not to leave dogs or any other pets in cars in hot weather.
Board member Pam Ardnt-Schick said that leaving your pet in a vehicle on a hot day can lead to heat stroke, suffocation, brain damage and also death.
“Leaving a window open slightly is not enough,” said Arndt-Schick.
Unless a pet can be brought into wherever the pet owner is going, the best place for pets is at home.
The Humane Society held its annual garage sale last week.
“Our proceeds were down a bit from previous years,” said Arndt-Schick. “But we still we did very, very well and I’d like to thank the community for their involvement with the garage sale, all the donations and all the volunteers that worked at the garage sale.”
