Letters to the editor for Aug. 20

This has been one of the hottest summers up here in a long time, and what irritates me is pet owners who can’t seem to understand that two minutes in a hot car is too much during the day.

I work at a grocery store in town, and daily I see people go grocery shopping while leaving their pets unattended in their hot cars. It’s cruelty ” they are suffering whether you choose to believe it or not. Today, my car temperature gauge inside said it was 105 outside, and someone had their dog inside their car with only 2 inches on either side of the windows rolled down.

What’s it going to take for people to realize this is not OK? Your pets deserve more. Leave them at home during the day while you run errands. Save a pet’s life!
