Don’t Leave Your Pet in a Parked Car

Finally, in the hustle and bustle of travel, it’s often easy or convenient to leave your pet in the car. Unless you’re in a secure, cool, and covered parking garage, it’s a horrible mistake. It takes only a few minutes for a car’s interior temperature to climb to a fatal level.

More and more places are making it illegal to leave a pet in a hot car. If you leave your pet inside, you might come back to a car with a broken window, no pet, and a police officer with handcuffs at the ready.

Many Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles now come with a Rear Seat Reminder system. If you use the back door to load your pet into the car, you'll get a reminder to check the back seat the next time you turn the engine off.
