My Dog Is Cool … Is Yours?

Did you know that, every year, countless dogs die from being locked in hot cars while their guardians work, shop, or run other errands? The “dog days” of summer can be dangerous for dogs — especially those dogs left inside hot cars. These tragic deaths are entirely preventable. Visit API’s lifesaving website “My Dog is Cool” at This website provides you with resources including the downloadable “It’s hot!” flyers that can be used when a dog is left in a hot car, and an easy weather forecast lookup to help plan road trips with canine pals. The site provides everything needed to keep dogs safe and happy during hot weather.


California Residents:

Good news on SB 1578!

The California Senate recently approved SB 1578, a bill that would prohibit dogs from being chained to a stationary object, such as a tree or fence, as the primary means of confinement. SB 1578, authored by Senator Alan Lowenthal, moved off the Senate floor and now heads to the Assembly for consideration. Thanks for your emails, calls, and faxes in support of this bill — they made a difference in getting this bill approved by the Senate! Stay tuned for information on how you can help to get this bill into law.
