Support Safe Transportation of Pets
The Humane Society of Ventura County strives to educate animal owners on how to properly care for their pets. This standard extends to the transportation of animals in motor vehicles, particularly unattended vehicles. We believe leaving an animal unattended in a vehicle for an extended period of time endangers the health and well-being of that animal and is therefore inhumane and unacceptable.
With my signature, I stand with HSVC against endangering the health and well-being of an animal by leaving it in an unattended vehicle and exposing it to excessive heat, extreme cold, lack of adequate ventilation, lack of food or water, or other circumstances that could cause suffering, disability, or death to the animal.
