With temperatures hitting the century mark it could make for dangerous conditions for people and pets, so SCRAPS is working to crack down on animal endangerment.
Finding animals in cars still remains their top priority but SCRAPS is also targeting animals that are outside playing fetch and running and letting their owners know of the consequences that come with it.
In the SCRAPS building animal control officers were busy Tuesday discussing their plan for the 10-day outlook. With temperatures staying in the 90s this is going to be a busy time for them. On Monday officers responded to 12 calls for service for either pets in cars or just to check on conditions.
They'll be actively looking for animals in the heat and informing owners that it could have deadly consequences. Just two weeks ago a dog chained to a fence died from what was believed to be heat stroke. They're making sure that doesn't happen again and working to prevent it.
