Italian model Elisabetta Canalis may be known for heating it up with ex-boyfriend George Clooney, but now she is sending an entirely different message when it comes to steaming up the scene.

She has joined forces with PETA to educate others about the importance of not leaving your dogs in the car when the temperature is extremely hot. In the video, watch below, Canalis acts out what it’s like for dogs to be trapped in overheating cars and, as you can see, it’s not a happy experience.

At the end of the video this line appears, “Dogs can suffer from heatstroke and die in a matter of minutes when left in a car on a warm day. In the summer, leave your dog at home.”

Did you know that, “On a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a shaded car is 90 degrees, while the inside of a car parked in the sun can reach 160 degrees in minutes,” PETA reveals on its site.

Canalis also explains why she teamed up with PETA. “It’s very important for me to do this video for PETA, because it’s very dangerous and sometimes deadly, to leave our animals in the car.”

This isn’t the first time the 33-year-old showed her support for PETA. In 2011, she posed nude as part of the series, “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur.”

“I decided to go nude because I think that nudity always creates a big reaction,” she told PETA. “That is what is required to keep people’s attention on such a brutal practice …. These poor animals are electrocuted, skinned alive, drowned, and bludgeoned just for the sake of fashion.”

The animal rights group and Canalis hope people take this video seriously. If it’s hot and you’re going to leave your pets in the car, please leave your pup at home instead. Here are some tips, provided by PETA, on what to do if you see a dog sitting in a hot car and how to keep dogs cool on hot summer days.

“If it’s too hot for us, then it’s definitely too hot for our dogs,” Canalis added.
