HARTFORD Connecticut – June 1, 2016 – Rescue Pets From Hot Cars, LLC introduces a public service announcement “Yelp For Help” for distribution to supermarkets and malls nationwide. The thirty second audio public service announcement, warns shoppers about rising temperatures inside a parked vehicle and the deadly consequences it poses to pets and children.
Robin Potwora, the founder of Rescue Pets From Hot Cars is the first to present an in-store educational tool in the campaign targeted at not leaving pets or kids inside parked cars. The Yelp For Help public service announcement features Fido whimpering as a reminder to shoppers about the potential consequences of leaving kids or pets in cars parked on asphalt paved lots on a hot summer's day. Price Chopper/Market 32 is the first to join Potwora in an effort to protect kids and pets, and is featuring the public service announcement in all one hundred thirty four stores throughout New England. Potwora says, “Until veterinarians, pediatricians and dog breeders effectively teach parents about the dangers of leaving living cargo inside parked vehicles, conscientious merchants such a Price Chopper/Market 32 merchants are turning to Yelp for Help.”
Safe Kids Worldwide, reports 14 percent of adults admit to leaving infants and toddlers alone in a parked vehicle. One child every ten days on average dies from heatstroke when left unattended in a vehicle. The American Veterinary Medical Association reports every year, hundreds of pets die in parked vehicles from heat exhaustion. If the outside temperature is 70° F in just ten minutes time the temperature inside your vehicle can rise almost 20° F. Cracking the windows down makes no difference since pets and kids are still at risk for heat exhaustion, organ failure or worse death.
