Great news for Florida dogs! With warmer weather just around the corner, Florida’s hot car law couldn’t have passed at a better time.

Florida senators have given final approval on a new bill that will provide legal protection for good Samaritans that break into a vehicle to rescue children or pets.


Under the bill, people will now be protected against legal action by a car’s owner if they smash a window or break into a hot vehicle to rescue a person or animal in distress.

Those breaking into a vehicle must call 911 immediately after saving the person or animal and must remain with the vehicle until first responders arrive in order to be protected.

    Just remember to hit the side windows in any corner as that is where they are the weakest and will easily shatter the window. It can be very difficult without he right tool to break a window hitting it in the center where it is the strongest.
