"Don't Leave Me in Here - It's Hot!" - Hot Car Flyer

Because many states allow only seeing eye or assistance dogs to be brought into stores or malls, some people take their dogs along but leave them in the car. This can be deadly.

A little heat outside the car can quickly make it very hot inside. On a summer's day of only 85 degrees Fahrenheit, for example, even keeping the windows slightly open won't stop the inside temperature from climbing to 102 degrees in 10 minutes, to 120 degrees in 20 minutes. A dog whose body temperature rises to 107-108 degrees will within a very short time suffer irreparable brain damage -- or even death.

API�s Hot Car Flyer has saved countless animals� lives over the years. With its tips on prevention and treatment, the Hot Car Flyer has proven to be a painless reminder that alerts someone of the dangers of leaving animals in the car while he or she is shopping. Whenever you see a parked car with animals inside, place the Hot Car Flyer under the windshield wiper. (If you see a child in the car, see the store manager.) Your own lifesaving packet of Hot Car Flyers is available from API at 25 for $3. Order via the address, phone number, or email below, or online here.
