West Mercia Police are sadly beginning to receive calls of dogs left locked in vehicles.  With the weather getting warmer please think about leaving your beloved pet at home.

Many people think it’s ok to leave their dog in the car if they’re parked in the shade or the windows are open. But a car can become as hot as an oven, even when the weather doesn’t feel that warm. When it’s 22 degrees Celsius outside, the car could reach an unbearable 47 degrees within an hour. It’s very dangerous and will cause your dog suffering and harm.


Please do consider the weather when you take your dog out in the car with you.  Police will take positive action and break into your vehicle if we truly believe the dog is in distress.
