A dog left in a car in high temperature in Colorado was rescued by an officer with the Loveland Police Department. The Larimer Humane Society posted video clips of the rescue on social media.

According to reports, officers received a call about a dog left inside a hot car on Thursday. Calls were placed to the Larimer Humane Society’s animal protection and control dispatch. The clips show an officer shattering the driver’s side window of the parked car to get to the dog.

An animal protection officer also responded to where the car was parked near Planet Fitness on East Eisenhower Boulevard, local media reports said. The animal protection officers and the police department worked together to rescue the dog.

Authorities said the temperature inside the car reached 100 degrees. It remains unknown as to how long the dog was left inside the vehicle. After being rescued, the dog was taken to a veterinarian for treatment. The humane society said the dog’s owner was cited for animal cruelty.

According to the humane society, on an 85-degree day, the internal temperature of a vehicle with its windows slightly open can reach 102 degrees within 10 minutes and 120 degrees within 20 minutes.

It is inhumane to leave a dog inside a vehicle under such conditions.

"If you see a dog left alone in a hot car, take down the car's color, model, make, and license plate number. Have the owner paged in the nearest buildings, or call local humane authorities or police," according to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). "Have someone keep an eye on the dog. Don't leave the scene until the situation has been resolved."

In May, a 20-year-old was charged with animal cruelty after she locked her dog in her car at a Burger King parking lot on Cleveland Street in Elyria, Ohio. Burger King employee Antonio Arroyo found the dog locked in the car and quickly called the police.

“It’s like 80 degrees outside, and I’m looking at this car, I’m looking inside the car and they have no food or water,” Arroyo told local media. “I think she should get charged. She should face some jail time and face a serious fine and get her dog taken away, because that’s unacceptable."

Police arrived at the scene and were able to unlock the car and rescue the dog.
