(Information from Chief Andre Reymer) – “Police have responded to a few calls recently about pets being left in cars without proper ventilation. Anyone with such a concern is asked to contact Police. Bystanders have no authority to break into a vehicle to assist a pet; although they could break into a vehicle if they perceive children in medical distress in such a situation. The Good Samaritan Act is intended to indemnify people providing first aid etc. in acts of good faith.”
