Please, if you care about your pets, leave them at home on warm days! The interior of the car can get dangerously hot in just a few minutes, with temperatures often 20-30+ degrees warmer inside than outside. Cracking the window doesn’t do enough to help.
Broken Arrow Police Department has taken enforcement action in situations involving animals left in cars. Penalties can include fines, jail time, or a prison sentence. Additionally, the officers can break your vehicle windows to retrieve your pet.
