Nevada Makes It Against The Law To Leave Dogs In Hot Cars

Dhicon_thumb By DogHeirs Team | June 19, 2017 | Comments (0)

The state of Nevada has made it illegal to leave dogs in hot cars this summer, passing a bill on June 4, 2017 that strengthens the pre-existing laws. 

"Senate Bill 409 passed in the last legislative session raised the penalty for leaving a pet in a hot, locked car to the same level as leaving a child in the car," says Cathy Brooks, owner of The Hydrant Club.

Anyone found guilty of leaving their dog stuck in a hot car could face either six months behind bars or a $1,000 fine. Dog owners are also being warned to keep their dogs off hot sidewalks and pavement, as it can burn their paws.

Here’s what to do if you find a dog in a hot car.
