Now that summer is upon us and the temperature is beginning to rise, pet owners need to be more aware of the heat.

Although we live in Del Norte County where the temperature can change every hour and you can almost get an accurate temperature just by opening your door, take special care of your pets.

If your pet is tied up outside make sure they have plenty of water and shade. And if you’re a pet owner who takes their pet with them everywhere they go, then please be aware that if your pet is locked in your car the temperature can rise very, very quickly.
