As there are times when human goodness and empathy prevails, there are times where things like this happen – the police in St. Catharines reported that pet parents continue to leave pets in hot vehicles.
In one case, to save a dog, a police officer had to break the window of the car (which can cause trauma for the pup) and took the pup to the vet to help save his life. This is not only inhuman behavior, but even if the damage is managed and salvaged, there are still lasting effects – the monetary cost and the psychological trauma that the pup went through while barely hanging on to his life.
The people who are exhibiting such behavior are fined, but what if a pup dies in a hot car? Can money compensate for the loss of a life? I think you would agree that there is no debate here. People who can’t take proper care of their pet, shouldn’t parent one – it’s not worth risking the pup’s life while they go out shopping – even for a second.
