Dog rescued from hot car while owner works out at gym

The Alhambra Police Department rescued Monday a dog locked in a car near L.A. Fitness on Main Street. The owner was exercising at the gym when officers responded to a report of the trapped dog, Alhambra PD posted on Facebook.

Officers found the Yorkshire Terrier panting heavily without water and called tow services to release it. Officers used a temperature gun to determine that the internal temperature of the car was 113 degrees, compared to an outdoor temperature of 80 degrees, according to Alhambra PD.

Officers located and arrested the owner for cruelty to animals. The dog has been released to a relative of the owner, the agency posted on Facebook.

Pets should not be left alone in a car, even with air conditioning or open windows, according to the Humane Society of the United States. On an 85 degree day, the inside of a car can reach 102 degrees in 10 minutes and 120 degrees in 30 minutes. Animals trapped in this heat can suffer irreversible organ damage or even death.

  1. GOOD – that the owner was arrested and I hope he/she receives a lengthy prison term; please no probation or paying a fine only.

  2. Glad they arrested the owner. What an ignorant person. I hope the jail cell they were in had no A/C.

Do you have a question you would like to ask Alhambra candidates?
