Recently we have posted a number of stories about the dangers of leaving animals in hot cars, and now we are happy to report that someone has come up with a solution.
At an IKEA location in Cologne, Germany they are testing a new idea, the “dog parking lot,” which is a safe area where dogs can hang out while their owners are shopping in the store.
Each dog has its own space, with fake grass, water and a secure place to tie a leash
While there have not been any pet facilities to open in other areas, the company is planning to hopefully implement this idea worldwide.
Last week we reported that a new state law in Tennesse protects citizens from being sued if they are freeing a pet from a hot car.
Professional football player Tyrann Mathieu recently locked himself in a hot car to simulate what the experience is like for a dog. The demonstration was a part of a public service announcement to raise awareness about how dangerous a hot car can be for any living creature.
