In the time it takes to run in and get a Slurpee, your pet or your children could already be at risk. On July 16, Helen Woodward Animal Center Public Relations Manager John Van Zante closed himself in a van with a thermometer to demonstrate how quickly the heat inside can rise to dangerous, if not deadly, levels. In the main parking lot at Helen Woodward Animal Center, 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe, Van Zante demonstrated how swiftly the temperature inside any vehicle can rise. In the photo, he had been in the car for just 15 minutes. Puppies, dogs that are large, overweight, older, or taking medication, carry higher risk. Courtesy photo
