I’m going to yield this blog post to someone named Stephanie Perrier.  I don’t know Stephanie but her treatise on how to react if you think you see a dog in a hot car is the best I’ve seen.

Link: If you see what you think is an overheated dog in a car.

The only thing I could add is for dog owners themselves. My SAR group has found the ProSelect Solar ProSelect Solar Crate CanopiesShade Crate Canopies can provide as much as 20 degrees temperature difference inside a car. They’re sold in sizes that will cover everything from a single crate to an entire pickup truck.

They’re not cheap but they work as advertised (and this is NOT a paid endorsement). They’re surprisingly durable given their mesh construction, and they compress down to go right back in the storage bag that comes with them. I highly recommend them.
