It’s hot in the Vegas valley and we at New Home Resource would like to remind everyone to be mindful of the heat when taking your four-legged friends for a ride in the car. Did you know that on a 78 degree day, temperatures in your vehicle can reach 100 to 120 degrees in minutes? If it is 90 degrees outside (which we would consider a relatively cool day in Vegas during the Summer), the temperature in your car could reach 160 degrees in as little as 10 minutes! Please think twice before leaving your pet in the car, even if you do plan to be away for just a few minutes. An animal can suffer brain damage or death from heat stroke in just 15 minutes.
