We all know it’s wrong, and we all wish there was something we could do about it, and while In most areas, it is only legal for police officers to smash a window and save a pet left in a car to freeze or bake to death, things might change.

Lawmaker’s in New York are aiming to amend laws to allow passersby to save animals in trouble.  Assemblyman John Ceretto has created a bill which would allow ordinary citizens to do the right thing when all else fails.

Now, this is not an invitation for people to go around breaking windows whenever they see a dog in a car. Temperatures would have to be life threatening, it’s only a last resort measure and an attempt to find the owner will have to be made first.

This is a great thing and we can only hope this bill get’s passed and other states take note. Hats off to John Ceretto!
