WEATHER THIS HOT MEANS DANEROUS CONDITIONS - FOR PEOPLE
SCRAPS IS CRACKING DOWN ON ANIMAL ENDANGERMENT.
KXLY'S ALLIE NORTON IS WORKING FOR YOU TONIGHT.
SHE HAS DETAILS ON WHAT THEY'RE DOING TO MAKE SURE
EVERYONE IS HAVING A SAFE SUMMER.
SOT/ ALLIE NORTON @AllieKXLY @:46-:59
Finding animals in cars still remains their top priority.
They're also targeting animals that are outside playing
fetch and running and letting their owners know of
the consequences that come with it.
IN THE SCRAPS BUILDING.
ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICERS WERE BUSY DISCUSSING THEIR
PLAN FOR THE 10-DAY OUTLOOK.
WITH TEMPERATURES STAYING IN THE 90'S.
THIS IS GOING TO BE A BUSY TIME FOR THEM.
YESTERDAY OFFICERS RESPONDED TO 12 CALLS FOR SERVICE
FOR EITHER PETS IN CARS OR JUST TO CHECK ON CONDITIONS.
THEY'LL BE ACTIVELY LOOKING FOR ANIMALS IN THE HEAT
AND INFORMING OWNERS THAT
IT COULD HAVE DEADLY CONSEQUENCES.
IT WAS ONLY TWO WEEKS AGO THAT A DOG CHAINED TO A
FENCE DIED FROM WHAT WAS BELIEVED TO BE HEAT STROKE.
THEY'RE MAKING SURE THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN AGAIN AND
WORKING TO PREVENT IT.
When the body temperature gets over 104 were going
to start worrying about some brain damage so we do
want to start cooling the dogs down.
As we mentioned the water to the chest, ears, feet,
Get that dog inside the cab of your vehicle.
Turn on the air conditioning.
Lets try to keep it cool and then get it to a vet
IF A PET LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE SHOWING SIGNS OF HEAT
OFFICERS WILL REMOVE THE ANIMAL TO GET IT TO SAFETY.

If you see an animal in distress please do not hesitate
to contact SCRAPS.
It could be what saves their life.
