Beware of heat danger for pets


Last updated 7/25/2023 at 11:39am

Most folks understand that leaving your dog in a hot car in the heart of summer is dangerous. Dogs can be in distress within minutes, and they can die as temperatures soar in what becomes a bake oven.

People may be less aware of the dangers of hot pavement on their furry friends' paws. If you wouldn't want to walk on the blacktop in bare feet, it's too hot for your dog.

To raise awareness, Furry Friends' "Paw Patrol" will be distributing hot pavement warning signs throughout the Sisters business community.

The pavement is just too hot for dogs' paws, especially late in the afternoon when summer temperatures soar. Damage can occur at lower summer temperatures that you might not consider too hot.

If you can't hold your hand to the pavement for five seconds, it's too hot for your dog's paws.

Businesses who would like one of small signs for their door or window can contact Furry Friends at 541-797-4023.
