St. Lucie Animal Control Urges Pet Owners to Care for Animals During Summer Heat
St. Lucie County’s Animal Control staff urges pet owners to be responsible during the hot summer months and be aware of current county ordinances.
St. Lucie County’s Animal Control Ordinance prohibits pet owners from keeping animals tethered outside during extreme weather conditions. Tethering is allowed with limitations outlined in the ordinance. Additionally, animals kept outside in fenced enclosures must have a covered shelter to provide shade from the heat.
“Pets should be treated just like members of your family. Children and pets shouldn’t be left alone in the brutal South Florida summer heat,” added St. Lucie County Public Safety Director Ron Parrish.
Animals should also never be left unattended inside vehicles without air conditioning. Summer temperatures inside a vehicle can cause death and/or brain damage within 15 minutes.
Residents with concerns about the welfare of animals in their neighborhood should call 9-1-1 to report the incident to Animal Control.
