Petition to right to rescue pets from hot cars

PETITION: Petition: Allow the "Right to Rescue" pets from hot cars/>
Target: U.S.D.A

As temperatures kick up in the summer, it is important to remember how hard this is on our beloved pets. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), hundreds of animals die each year due to vehicular heat stroke. That is, they are left in the car and the car heats up much faster than the owner realized. The majority of these incidents happen by accident due to simple misjudgments. The temperature inside a car heats up much faster than one realizes, even on a 70 degree day the temperature inside of the car can reach 100 degrees in only 20 minutes. Recent "Right to Rescue" laws in Wisconsin, Tennessee, Florida, and Ohio are creating a way for people to intervene and help these animals in need. In the aforementioned states, concerned civilians can now forcefully break into locked vehicles to free trapped dogs (and kids) without facing civil liability. This petition asks that the rest of the country follow these states. Sign the petition below to urge the USDA to give us the right to rescue endangered pets and children.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO ME THAT ALL ANIMALS ARE PROTECTED. THEY DIDN'T ASK TO BE THROWN IN A CAR THAT GETS OVER 100 DEGREES AND NO ONE IS CARING FOR THEM. SO IF THEY NEED HELP PEOPLE THAT CARE SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET THEM OUT OF THE CAR BEFORE THEY DIE.
