Be an Angel for Animals With Krysten Ritter

Posted by  Chelsi Schriver

You’ve seen her all over the small screen—from her role as the tragically addicted Jane on Breaking Bad to the smart and witty Chloe on Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23. Now Krysten stars in her first peta2 campaign, along with her super-cute rescue dog Mikey Mohawk, in a sultry and inspirational “Be an Angel for Animals” ad.

She’s so good at playing the bad girl on TV, but Krysten definitely knows that it’s good (and necessary!) to speak up when animals are left unattended in hot cars. See what she has to say in our behind-the-scenes video.

A dog can die in a matter of minutes in a hot car. So if you’re running errands, just take him or her in with you. Don’t leave your dog in the car.

It’s hard to believe, but even on a mildly warm 78-degree day, the interior of a car parked in the shade will rise to 90 degrees, and cars parked in the sun reach a temperature of 160 degrees in a matter of minutes!

Because dogs aren’t able to cool themselves through sweating like humans (they only pant and sweat a little bit through their paws), being confined to a hot environment without relief can quickly trigger heatstroke and shock. On a hot day, 15 minutes in a hot car is all it can take for a dog to sustain brain damage and, in the most extreme circumstances, die.

Can you imagine the agony of being helplessly trapped inside a steel coffin while being cooked from the inside out? Hot cars kill!

Take a cue from Krysten and be an angel for animals!

If you ever see a dog locked in a hot car, take action! Alert local businesses to page the car owner, and if no one is answering, call 911—as it would be an emergency situation. Never leave the scene until the dog is OK!

    You guys should make postcard-sized ads like this one and sell them on the point store! I would get a few for my friends, they don’t know that hot cars are death traps for dogs…. :(
