Employee of 
the Month
Gayle, Dottie and Piglet

Meet Gayle. She's been working at WagsInn since 2012. She's the go-to person for everything from fixing a walkie-talkie to transporting the daycare dogs and working in the office to caring for our rescues. Her heart is as big as Texas and her spunk is crazy contagious. 

She loves to read, especially true crime and biographies. The best part of her job is meeting people that love their dogs as much as she loves her two rescues, Piglet and Dottie (pictured above). 

Gayle's dream is much like the saying, "In a perfect world every dog would have a home and every home would have a dog." 

Thank you for all that you do for WagsInn, Gayle!

Dogs and Hot Cars Don't Mix

It doesn't have to be that warm outside for a car to become dangerously hot inside. Here are some facts from  Petfinder . It's best to leave your dog home on hot, summer days. 
  • Rolling down your windows doesn't prevent heat from rising.
  • The inside of a car can reach 120 degrees in a matter of minutes.
  • Dogs can succumb to heatstroke even when the car is parked in the shade.
  • When it's 80 degrees outside, the temperature inside your car can heat up to 99 degrees within 10 minutes.
So what should you do if you see a dog left in a hot car? 
  • Try to locate the pet's owner - write down the license plate number, make, model, and color of the vehicle.
  • If the owner is not located, call animal control or the police.
  • If the dog appears to be in distress or show signs of heatstroke, call animal control or 9-1-1 immediately. Find a way to get that dog out of the car IMMEDIATELY!
  • In many states, it's against the law to endanger a dog by leaving him in a hot car.
