today's action Hot Cars Kill - Do your part to protect dogs this summer

Rising temperatures mean danger for dogs stuck in hot cars. Every year, dogs suffer and can die when their guardians make the mistake of leaving them in a parked car.

Parked cars are deathtraps for dogs. Dogs are unable to protect themselves from the heat and can sustain brain damage and even die after only 15 minutes in a hot parked car.

That's why you need to speak up for animals when the temperature is rising and the car doors are locked.

For today's Daily Action, watch the PETA video, "Hot Cars Kill," to see what it can be like for a dog left in a hot car. Then, please use the free "Too Hot For Spot" decal on your car window to remind drivers that in hot weather, dogs should be left at home.
