CSP: Dog Rescued from Hot Car

By Connecticut State Police.

Remember, never leave your pets alone in a car on a warm day. If you see an animal in distress in a hot car, report it to police immediately.

On July 4, 2022, at 1:48 p.m., New Fairfield Officers and Sergeants/Troopers from the New
Fairfield Resident Trooper’s Office responded to a business parking lot for a report of a dog locked inside a parked car. The temperature at the time was approximately 82 degrees. Officers observed a dog in distress, locked inside a dark-colored car, with its windows rolled up. It is unknown how long the dog was left unattended inside the car. Officers broke a window and moved the dog to an air-conditioned police cruiser, where the dog’s condition improved. The New Fairfield Animal Control Officer (ACO) quickly responded to the scene and took custody of the dog. The investigation by the New Fairfield ACO remains ongoing. Per the ACO, verification of ownership, evaluation from an emergency vet and the medical records/shots are being determined. Anyone with information is asked to contact the New Fairfield Animal Control Officer.
