We are partnering with the local arts community to raise awareness about the dangers of leaving pets in hot vehicles.

Artists of all ages and skill levels are invited to submit mason jars painted with their interpretation of #HotCarsKillPets.
Please send photos of the painted jars by using the form below, along with your name, age (optional) and a brief description of your work.
Your submissions will be featured on this gallery page and on our social media.
Please do not send in the actual jars. They are yours to keep.
This campaign will remain open until the end of September 2020.

contest alert!

Submit photos of your painted mason jars by Friday, September 25th at 7:00pm for a chance to win a free Water Colour 8 x 10 Pet Portrait by Candice Leyland (a $125 value!).

Heat Stroke Alert:

Did you know that a dog’s normal body temperature is about 39°C and a temperature of 41°C can be withstood only for a very short time before irreparable brain damage or even death can occur?

Leave your pet at home:

But if you must bring them in the car with you...

  • Keep in mind – below O°C your car is a freezer and above 21°C it is an oven for your pet.

Think your pet has heat stroke?:

  • Get them to a veterinarian ASAP
  • Give them lukewarm water
  • Use wet towels to cool them down
  • Put them in front of a cool air fan
