Canine Companions® started this petition to U.S. House of Representatives and

Take Action: Sign Canine Companions’ Change.org petition to strengthen the Hot Cars Act and prevent tragedies involving service dogs or pets.

The stories are heartbreaking - a distracted driver exits their vehicle to go inside a business or their home and accidentally leaves an animal or child in the backseat in fatal heat. Did you know that the inside of a car can reach 109 degrees in just 30 minutes on a pleasant 75-degree day? The American Veterinary Medical Association estimates that hundreds of pets die from heat exposure in closed vehicles every year.

As someone who cares about service dogs and pets, we’re asking you to sign our petition supporting the Hot Cars Act - while we also work to strengthen the bill.

The Hot Cars Act would require vehicle manufacturers to include sensors in passenger seats so that drivers and nearby bystanders can be notified with an alert if a person is left unattended. These technologies already exist and can easily be included in new cars.

Canine Companions supports the Hot Cars Act, but we’re also calling on lawmakers to specifically include service dogs and other animals in the groups protected by its provisions.

Sign our Change.org petition today! Together we can protect service dogs and pets from the dangers of hot cars.
