DOGS DIE IN HOT CARS! If you see an animal in an overheated car, lookfor the owner to ask him or her to let the animal out immediately, give it water and take it to a vet if necessary. If you can't locate the owner promptly, call the police to get the animal out of the car. Wait for them to arrive. If they don't know they're empowered to remove the animal, you can let them know that Statute § 353-d says they can take necessary steps to remove the animal or animals from the vehicle.
