Keep pets cool!

Clackamas County Dog Shelter Supervisor Tamara Moxon asks people to be especially careful to keep their pets cool during hot weather. Moxon advises, “Dogs and cats don’t sweat like people do. They eliminate heat through their mouth (by panting) and the pads of their feet, and can overheat quickly.”

Never leave a pet in a parked car, which is especially dangerous in the summer, even for a short time. Even with outside temperatures as low as 72 degrees, a car's interior temperature can increase an average of 40 degrees within an hour.

Suggestions for keeping pets safe on hot days:
