Dogs in hot cars
From ANIMAL PEOPLE, September 2010:
(published October 5, 2010)
At instigation of Animal Issues founder Phyllis Daugherty and
state assembly member Anthony Portantino, the 2011 California Dept.
of Motor Vehicles drivers’ handbook is to include a warning about the
dangers of leaving dogs unattended in vehicles–which can carry a
fine of up to $500 plus six months in jail if harm to the dog
results. The handbook advisory follows a public education campaign
by the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.
