FREDERICK, Maryland (WHAG) Those with animal control in Frederick County said they’ve seen an increase of people leaving their dogs in hot cars this year.

You’ve probably heard not to leave your child in a hot car, but those with Frederick County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center said they’ve seen around a 20 percent increase in people leaving their four-legged friends in hot cars. They said while this may not be intentional, it can quickly become deadly.

“We have experienced between fiscal year 2013 and 2014 a significant increase. We saw 235 calls for service in 2013, and we’ve witnessed 280 calls for service in 2014,” said Harold Domer, director of Frederick County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center.

Animal control officials say the temperature inside a car on a 90-degree day can increase 10 to 15 degrees in just 10 minutes.
