Hero Cops Smash Window To Rescue Mother Dog And Her Puppy From Hot Car

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officials are hailed as heroes after rescuing a mother dog and puppy from the backseat of a hot car earlier this month.

Although the car was parked in a closed parking garage, the outside temperature was just under 96 degrees. A friendly guard noticed the dogs in distress and immediately called the police.

The car was parked in a parking lot for the Wild Wild West Gambling Hall – and the owner of the dogs was believed to be gambling.

When the officers arrived, they saw the two dogs gasping and gasping in the car. A sunroof and rear windows stayed slightly open, but the dry, stale air did not circulate.

With the dogs in the back seat, one of the quick-thinking officers decided to smash the passenger-side window to get them safely. Body camera footage shows the tired and panting dogs in the arms of another officer.

One of the dogs couldn’t stop wagging its tail when it realized it was finally saved. After the daring rescue, the dogs were taken to a local veterinary office in a patrol car, where they were taken care of. Fortunately, both dogs were unharmed in the incident.

“Recently, our officers were forced to smash car windows to rescue dogs in distress,” the department said on Facebook. “The heat in Las Vegas is deadly and the weather is too hot to leave animals and pets in cars. In two unrelated cases we saved the lives of three poor puppeteers and arrested an owner. “

Leaving an animal unattended in a car is a crime in Nevada “When conditions, particularly extreme heat or cold, pose a significant risk to the health and safety of the pet.”

Across the country, 31 states have similar laws that vary in who can save the animals. Fifteen states allow anyone to rescue an animal in need, while in Nevada only public safety officers and animal control officers can do so on private property.

While it is not clear whether the owner of the dogs was arrested, many posted on social media calling for the dogs to be removed.

“Oh my god – thank you, Metro,” wrote one affected person. “They were the chosen angels that day to save these babies. Please, please don’t let her return to this terrible person. “
