Wisconsin Store Solves Dogs Left In Hot Cars Dilemma

Ever had your dog in the car and needed to run a quick errand? With the new Illinois law, It’s not a good idea. It never is. This fixes the problem all together.

Although the law is kind of vague, the fine is quite pricey. The law states “No owner of a dog or cat that is a companion animal may expose the dog or cat in a manner that places the dog or cat in a life-threatening situation for a prolonged period of time in extreme heat or cold conditions that results in injury to or death of the animal.” The fine is up to $2500. Not cheap.

A grocery store in Green Bay has come up with a great solution for pet owners in this dilemma according to wifr.com. It’s called ‘Pup Spot,’ and consists of a few small crates in a shaded area outside of the store where people can lock their pets up. They are then free to run in to the store quickly to pick up what they need without having to worry. The area has no designated person to watch over it, however store employees do run out from time to time to check on the animals. The assistant manager says they came up with the idea after receiving several complaints about animals being left in vehicles with no windows cracked. This is a much safer option for the animals. Do you think it would go over well in Rockford?
