1. Make the Call
If you don’t see the dog’s guardian close by, call your local animal control or non-emergency police number. Report that there is a pet in a car and be sure to tell them if the pet appears to be in any distress. Endangering a dog by leaving her in a car is against the law in many places.

2. Try to Find the Pet Parent
Note the license plate number, color, make and model of the car. Go to the nearest store or mall security office and ask them to make an announcement over the loudspeaker that a dog has been left in a car and needs help. Often this will be enough to make the guardian attend to his pet. (Photo credit: Thinkstock)
