Ricky Gervais: ‘Don't Leave Your Dog to Die’

Think it’s hot outside? Try being inside of a parked car with the engine off.

Ricky Gervais took to Twitter to warn people just how dangerous it is to leave their dogs inside their parked cars when they run errands during the summer.

The “Derek” actor warned his 5.85 million followers:

The comedian isn’t joking. A dog can die in under 15 minutes when left alone in a hot car, even one parked in the shade. If you see an animal locked in a car on a hot day, even if the windows are cracked, call the police ASAP.

Gervais is an avid animal rights activist but when he’s not being their voice, he is just making it clear just how much he loves them. On Tuesday, on an unrelated note, the English funny man tweeted, in his usual dry humor, how highly he thinks of his four legged friends.

“When religious people ask me ‘But don’t you believe there’s something better than us in the universe?’, I answer, ‘Yes, most dogs.’”
