Dog locked in 115°F car rescued in Sarasota

SARASOTA, Fla. — Temperatures in Florida are rising fast, so leaving pets in cars can turn deadly quickly.

Earlier this week, officers with the Sarasota Police Department responded to University Parkway to help rescue a dog that was left in a hot car.

The temperature inside the car was 115 degrees Fahrenheit, according to officials with the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services.

Body camera footage shows the moment when an officer broke a window of the dark colored car and brought the dog to safety.

When the owner came back outside, he told deputies that he left the car running. He was issued two citations by SCSO Animal Services.

To prevent a tragedy, remember to look for pets, children and elderly loved ones before you lock your car.
