My husband and I took our dog for a walk down to the beach - probably a mile from our house. It was warm outside, but it is still early, about 80 degrees.
In our walking, we come across a car with 2 dogs inside it. The windows were open just a bit and the dogs were barking their heads off. No humans in sight that the car might belong to. We were sweating just being outside and walking, I couldn't imagine how those poor dogs felt.
There is a bait shop, and I asked if the car belonged to anyone in there. They said no. So I called the non-emergency police number who then connected me to 911. I think I feel so silly because they connected me to 911, I dunno.
Did I do the right thing by calling the police?
Would you have called?
