FEEDBACK:  Elmore is a hero among us

FEEDBACK: Elmore is a hero among us

Kay Chandler, Mount Pleasant on a hero: “His name is Joe Elmore of the Charleston Animal Society. His article on the carriage trade industry told in depth of the serious and sad conditions the animals face daily. I was born in Charleston and grew up downtown where we would see a real carriage with a few tourists or a bride and groom riding around the Battery.”

FOCUS: Heat is summer’s number one danger for pets

By Dan Krosse, guest contributor | As the temperatures heat up, so do the risks of injuries for your pets. Dr. Lucy Fuller, DVM, of Charleston Animal Society says that the risk of heat stroke is the number one issue that pet owners need to be aware of.

“It takes less than five minutes for a car to get well over 100 degrees,” she warns. “There is no safe amount of time for a pet to be left in the car.”

Remember that dogs can’t sweat and the only way they can release heat is by panting. Health experts warn that just being outside can cause danger in the summer months.
