It's Hot! (In This Car!) Flyers & Posters!
Because many states allow only assistance dogs to be brought into stores or malls, some people take their dogs along on errands but leave them in the car. This can be deadly.
A little heat outside a car can quickly make it very hot inside. On a summer's day of only 85 degrees Fahrenheit, for example, even keeping the windows slightly open won't stop the inside temperature from climbing to 102 degrees in 10 minutes, and to 120 degrees in 20 minutes. A dog whose body temperature rises to 107-108 degrees will within a very short time suffer irreparable brain damage — or even death.
UAN's "Don't Leave Me in Here — It's Hot!" flier has saved countless animals' lives over the years. With its tips on prevention and treatment, the flier has proven to be a painless reminder that alerts someone of the dangers of leaving animals in the car while he or she is shopping. Whenever you see a parked car with animals inside, place the "Don't Leave Me in Here — It's Hot!" flier under the windshield wiper. (If you see an animal in imminent danger or a child left unattended inside a car, see the store manager or contact the police.)

It sucks that it's getting so hot now, Diesel and Kara love to go anywhere and everywhere in the car, but it's not worth risking their lives.

Thanks for the links! I'm passing them on to our clinic.

It stays really comfortable in there (we tested it in full sun w/o the dogs). But even so, we're planning on putting in a doggie door so they won't have to be crated 11 hours on hot days.
