The week of Thanksgiving is one of the busiest traveling weeks of the year. As we pack up to visit family and friends, we end up rushing and forgetting valuables. Yes, one valuable we sometimes forget is our family pet. You could be shopping or locking up the house before packing the family in the car. When we rush, we leave an opening to make mistakes like locking ourselves out the car or worse, our home.
Luckily, pet lockout services are available when we make mistakes.
Extreme temperature days are very dangerous for pets. In fact, it’s illegal to leave pets in the car or home if temperature conditions are dangerous. It only takes 15 minutes or less for a pet to become stressed from being locked in a home or car (if the environment is not pet-friendly and comfortable).
During the holidays many pet owners make the mistake of leaving their pets locked in the home for two days or more. In a rush, many pet owners forget to leave food and water for pets.
If your pet is locked in your home or car for a long period of time, you could face the following legal consequences:
- Banned from having pets
- Faced with a community service order
- Faced with legal fines
To prevent your pet from being locked in your home, you should consider having a door flap installed to grant your pet access to your backyard while you are away.
Don’t ever count on everything going smooth sailing. The heat in your home or car could fail to operate. And when the temperature drops, your pet is facing a life-threatening situation.
A deadly winter storm is expected this Thanksgiving holiday for the Northeast. Don’t let your family or pet become a victim of a wet snowstorm. Stay safe.
