Summer is here and temperatures are rising. The College Station Animal Control Division would like to remind citizens to take measures to protect their pets. If your pet travels with you remember if your vehicle is not running temperatures can reach well over 120 degrees in a matter of minutes. In College Station it is considered an ordinance violation to leave an animal inside a vehicle for more than 5 minutes when the outside temperature is over 85 degrees. Young, elderly or overweight animals, those with short muzzles and those with thick or dark-colored coats are at a greater risk of overheating. At home make sure animals have plenty of shade and water. Please contact your local Police Department if you encounter an animal inside a hot vehicle. The College Station Animal Control Division is available to answer any questions pet owners may have regarding pet safety. They can be reached at (979) 764-3600.
