Petition: Dogs in hot cars

It can take a little as 6 minutes for a dog to die in a hot car.

Even on cool days, the temperature inside a car can rapidly heat up to double that outside. A dog trapped in this environment can quickly suffer from dehydration and heat stress. In the time it takes to grab something from the shops, a dog left in a car may have already died an agonising death.

Victoria has introduced regulations making it illegal to dangerously leave animals in cars.

There is currently no law in NSW which says it is illegal to leave an animal alone in a hot car.

As we head into summer, we urgently need strong laws that stop people from jeopardising  animals’ lives for the sake of convenience. This cannot wait.

By signing the petition below, you’ll be calling on the NSW Government to urgently change the law and make it a crime to leave any animal alone in a hot car.
