"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." (Mahatma Gandhi)
Don't let your animal become a summertime statistic. Never leave your animal in a car in hot weather, not even "just to run into the store for a moment." If you see an animal in a car, call your local animal control or sheriff's department. You could save a life.
While many animals like being outdoors in the cold weather, not all can stand to be outside for very long. Make sure you are aware of issues that may affect your animal in the cold weather. Make sure they have adequate protection when the temperatures go below freezing.
