Summer Pet Safety
Whitehorse – Summer has finally arrived, at least temporarily, and that means keeping your pets safe from hot temperatures.
Don’t leave your pets unattended in vehicles during hot summer months, as temperatures can rise in a matter of minutes. Lowering windows does little to protect them in these situations.
If you see a distressed animal in a parked vehicle, write down the licence plate, vehicle colour, make and model, and ask nearby businesses to help find the owner to return to their vehicle immediately.
If the owner cannot be located, call the City’s trouble line at 667-2111. Do not attempt to break the window as you are not authorized to do so, and you are not only putting yourself at risk, but the animal as well.
Don’t forget that when travelling with your pets, please ensure they are safely secured inside your vehicle. It is both dangerous and a bylaw offence to travel with an unsecured animal in the bed of a truck.
