DEDHAM, Mass. — Thanks to the quick thinking of two Good Samaritans, two huskies were rescued from a hot car in Dedham last Friday, according to authorities.
Dedham Police say the duo noticed the dogs trapped in a locked car and called animal control. The temperature was in the 80s at the time of the incident.
The pair stayed with the stranded huskies until authorities arrived on scene. The dogs were taken to the nearest ER in Newton and officials say they’re doing okay.
It is unclear if the owner of the animals will face charges.
“Situations like this can escalate quickly and are 100% preventable,” town officials wrote in a social media post. “In a matter of minutes, the interior temperature of a car can reach 102 degrees on an 85 degree day, even if the windows are open! If you see an animal or a child in a car on a hot day, call 911.”
No further information was immediately available.
