    Default I Wish All Malls Would Do This

    This is so awesome, the Mic Mac Mall in Nova Scotia, Canada now scan the parking lots looking for pets locked in cars.


    Mall Debuts Pet Patrols To Save Dogs Trapped In Hot Cars


    Sara Gates The Huffington Post 07/15/14 06:53 PM ET


    Despite warnings, some pet owners still forget that leaving a dog in a hot car -- even for a few minutes -- could be deadly.


    That's why a mall in Canada is launching a pet patrol program to keep customers from leaving their animals in locked vehicles while they shop. Mic Mac Mall in Nova Scotia recently unveiled the service following an incident at the shopping center in which police were called to break a car window to save an overheated dog.


    Under the program, mall security scan the parking lots surrounding the shopping center and keep an eye out for signs -- such as a cracked window -- that a pet may be locked in a vehicle, CBC News reports. If an animal is spotted, security will first attempt to contact the car owner.


    "The first step they’ll take is to try and assess the condition of the animal in the vehicle," Staff Sgt. Lindsay Hernden of Halifax Regional Police told CTV News.


    In dire situations, mall pet patrols will contact police.

    That is great. I never understood why people just don't get it, that a car can heat up so fast. Children, and/or dogs besides getting hot, also have a chance of being kidnapped.

    Not only are people leaving dogs in cars now they are leaving their children!!! I don't know what this world is coming to. It's very, very sad. Glad they are trying to do something about it in Canada. Hopefully the US will follow suit. If they had jail sentences for anyone leaving an animal in a parked car when the temps are even remotely warm, maybe people would think twice.

    I agree, it's on the news constantly now… it's beyond sickening!!! So HELP ME if I see a kid or pet in a car suffering, I'm breaking the DAMN window. I don't care anymore
