WATCH: NASCAR’s Daniel Suarez runs to the rescue of a dog


In a new PETA video, pausing after overtaking the competition on the fast lanes, a pioneering NASCAR driver Daniel Suarez races to stop a woman from making a life-threatening mistake – leaving her dog in a car on a hot summer day.

“You probably don’t realize that your dog can die of heat stroke in the time it takes you to do a quick pit stop“, said Suárez to the keeper.” Whatever race you have to do [run] isn’t as important as your dog’s life, is it? ” Spoiler alert: She agrees, of course!

Already this year in the United States, at least 31 dogs have died from heat-related causes – and these are just the cases that have been reported. Most certainly are not.

Temperatures inside a parked car can reach triple digits in just a few minutes, and since dogs cannot sweat and cool down primarily by panting, they are at a greater risk of suffering from heat stroke. than humans.

If the owner cannot be found, call 911 and if the authorities do not respond, do whatever it takes to save a life. The PETA store offers you an emergency window hammer to intervene in life and death situations.
