Leave plenty of water for your outdoor pets and make sure they have lots of shade, Huntersville Police urged after citing a woman in a puppy’s death.
Shannon Bostic Naldony, 38, was cited for misdemeanor cruelty to animals after police received a call about a puppy left in a hot outdoor kennel with no water on July 23. The puppy was found dead, police said Monday.
Never leave a pet in a vehicle, not even with the windows cracked, police also advised. Keep them off asphalt in summer and limit their exercise in the heat.
