Krysten Ritter, star of “Breaking Bad” and “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23,” appears in a new PETA ad stressing the importance of never leaving a dog alone in a hot car.
In an interview with PETA, Ritter stated, “I think it’s something that people don’t think about. It’s hot outside—your car is like a fishbowl. So the light comes in, and it gets trapped, and it gets really hot in there really quickly.” She goes on to say, “If you see a dog in a hot car, and you think that he’s in danger or that he’s been there for a while, it’s good to speak up .… Go into whatever businesses it’s parked outside of, and just raise awareness about it.”
Don’t be fooled into thinking that parking in the shade and rolling down the windows will keep your pet cool. On a mild summer day, the temperature in a shaded car can reach 100 degrees in just a few minutes.
The actress provided an easy way for pet owners to keep their canine companions safe – leave them at home.
