Thank you to the Bogart authorities for taking action in this situation and taking animal cruelty seriously. For more information about how quickly cars heat up (even with the windows cracked!) and why dogs are particularly susceptible to dying from overheating, visit . Brachycephalic dogs, or dogs with short muzzles like Bulldogs, have an even harder time cooling themselves and can die or suffer irreversible organ damage from overheating all too easily. When you need to run errands and it's forecasted to be more than 70 degrees out, leave your dog safely at home.
