As temperatures climb... officials at eugene animal services are cautioning everyone to not leave their pets inside a hot car --- even for a few minutes.
Under city law... all animals have to have access to water and they can't be in an area where the temps are too high.
Officers carry digital thermometers and can check the temperatures inside vehicles.
We caught up with one dog owner who's best friend was playing in a tub of water.
It's dangerous to them.
This weather is scary.
We've got our climate change.
It's hotter than it used to be too.
I don't think dogs wshould be in hot cars... if its 80 degress outside, it only takes 10 minutes for the temperature inside a car to reach 99.
And ten more minutes later, 109 degrees.
