Brockville Police are reminding the public not to leave animals in the car.

The reminder comes after officers responded to a call at the corner of King Street and Market Street about a dog left in a car. According to police when the owner was located he was charged under a by-law for not ensuring the well-being of the animal.

Jacob Horton, Animal Care Attendant with the Leeds and Grenville SPCA, says leaving a pet in the car is never really safe.

The SPCA urge anyone who witnesses animal abuse of any kind to call their investigators. The investigators work on a complaint basis, so they need your help to be aware of at-risk animals in the area. More information on the SPCA’s tip line can be found here. { }
