It’s become a major problem for people when they’re passing by and see a dog or cat locked in a hot car.

In some cases, people have even taken control of the situation themselves, breaking into the car and retrieving the animal to save it from the heat. Usually, law enforcement ends up getting involved in the situation, and no one wants to be involved with the chaos that usually ensues.
