Though the heat of summer means relaxing days outside and sweet treats to beat the boiling sunbeams, it’s important to remember how much animals can potentially suffer in the sun.
Being fur-covered, dogsalready face the risk of overheating if you do not take the proper steps to keep them comfortable.
And when they are neglected outside in the sun, especially if they are not hydrated, they can become agitated, be in pain, and be at risk of getting heatstroke and dying.
This was almost the fate ofa poor pair of dogs who were locked up on a roof in near-100 F heat by thoughtless owners.
