NEWMARKET, ON (June 3, 2014) – The Ontario SPCA is pleased to announce a new and exciting partnership between the Society and select Cadillac Fairview Shopping Centres. Working together, the Ontario SPCA, Cadillac Fairview, and participating shelters across Canada, are promoting the dangers of leaving pets unattended in hot vehicles through the award-winning NoHotPets.ca campaign.
The Ontario SPCA receives hundreds of reports of pets being left in cars every year.
Parked cars can quickly reach deadly temperatures, even on relatively mild days with the car parked in the shade and the windows slightly open.
Both the Ontario SPCA and Cadillac Fairview are encouraging pet owners to leave pets at home this summer where they are safe.
“The Ontario SPCA is very excited to be working with Cadillac Fairview this summer to help raise awareness of the dangers of leaving pets in hot vehicles,” says Connie Mallory, Chief Inspector. “Through the NoHotPets.ca campaign and the help of Cadillac Fairview, let’s make this a summer of no hot pets!”
“We want to do our part to help keep pets safe this summer,” says Tina Williams, Senior Manager, National Promotions & Strategic Partnerships, Cadillac Fairview. “By promoting the dangers of leaving pets unattended in vehicles we are hoping to help reduce the number of calls the Ontario SPCA receives.”
