A car can become an oven. When it is 22 degrees outside the inside of a car can reach an unbearable 47 degrees within an hour.
Nobody ever thinks it’s going to happen to them. Yet every year many people still gamble with their dog’s life by leaving them alone in a car on a warm day.
Many people still believe it will be OK if the windows are open slightly or they have parked in the shade, but it’s still dangerous.
Rehomed from our HULA centre last year, Woody is a gorgeous young cat with a lot of love to give. Sadly, he arrived back in our care due to a severe medical condition he has developed, which his owner could not afford to treat.
Our vets tell us that if Woody had not arrived in our care when he did, his bladder would have burst and he would have died this week.
He is currently on a drip with a catheter installed due to a blockage to his bladder, which isnt allowing him to pass urine naturally. He is awaiting an urgent operation to remove the blockage.
As a charity who receives no government funding, the support and donations from our supporters allow us to continue to provide a safe place for abandoned and unwanted animals and give them the care and rehabilitation they need and help them get a new start in life.
