Summer Heat

Keep Your Pets Safe In Summer Heat!

We love summer in Florida, but the high temperatures and blazing sun can be hard on pets. From heatstroke to burned paws, summer can be dangerous for our furry friends!

Download our Summer Safety Tip Sheet and our No Pets Left In Cars Handout to make sure you’ve got all the bases covered.

If you suspect that your pet is suffering from a heat-related cause, please call our Animal Health Center at 813.870.3304! You can also find a list of trusted Emergency Veterinary Clinics here for after-hours care.

Did you know that if you see a pet left in a car you can call AAA and they will send someone to help immediately? Just call them at 1-800-AAA-HELP (222-4357) or notify your local law enforcement agency.

Stay safe this summer!

My husband adopted Bosco last March. I believe this was a God driven adoption. My husband works on the pipeline. He is only home a few times a year. Bosco started with an aggressive behavior toward me. Now he knows I am his Mom & loves me so much. He is very protective of me & sleeps on my pillow in my arms every night. I love him so much. He gets along great with our other dogs. I just wanted you guys to know what joy he has brought to me. Thanks for all your hard work & dedication.
