BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER)--A little sun can brighten your day but to many pets the heat can be too much to handle.
Last summer, Bangor Animal Control responded to more than 100 calls for animals left in vehicles. Experts say if you leave a pet in a car to make sure someone else is with the animal in case a problem arises.
Charges of animal cruelty could mean a one thousand dollar fine or jail time. Officers say if it's too hot for you then it's too hot for your animal.
Animal control can be called out once temperatures rise above 67 degrees. They will also respond during the winter if the temperatures are under 35 degrees.
