The Comox Valley RCMP are urging people to leave their pets at home when travelling.
Should this not be possible and if they need to travel with you, do not leave them in the vehicle unattended.
The Comox Valley RCMP were kept busy earlier this week responding to a variety of calls, but four of those dealt with reports of dog owners not caring for their pets properly.
The SPCA has created information brochures and posters advertising the need to be cautious with pets in the vehicle, especially during these warmer months.
