The RSPCA has received more than 600 emergency calls about dogs suffering in the high temperatures after being left in cars in the hot weather and is urging dog owners to avoid leaving their pets shut in hot cars, as temperatures in the North West are set to hit 27oC on Thursday.
Chill Factore is opening its doors to the dogs of the North West who are looking to chill out and take a break from the hot weather.
Man’s best friend needn’t pant any longer as Chill Factore, the North West’s leading leisure destination, has employed its very own dog carer to enable owners to let their dog chill out at the region’s snow centre, which enjoys -5oC temperatures 364 days of the year.
Following the high temperatures which have hit the entire country this week, the RSPCA has received more than 600 emergency calls about dogs suffering in the high temperatures after being left in cars in the hot weather and is urging dog owners to avoid leaving their pets shut in hot cars as temperatures in the North West are set to hit 27oC on Thursday.
Dog owner and CEO of Chill Factore, Morwenna Angove, said: “It’s obviously a serious issue which we hope our snowy conditions can address by helping out all members of the family! We also want to highlight the serious heat issue to dog owners and support the RSPCA’s awareness drive. The dog ‘Chill’ service is free to users of the slope and any concerned owners looking for a safe place for their pooches to cool down.”
Open between 12-2pm this Thursday (28th June) during the hottest time of the day, Chill Factore’s “Canine Chill Zone” enables locals, and those shopping in the Trafford Centre, to go about their usual day without leaving their dog at risk. Manchester residents and visitors can go shopping, go to work or even pop into an appointment, knowing that their dog has a cool place to lay down, play, eat and drink. And of course, meet other doggie friends.
Skiers needn’t worry about yellow snow, with staff on hand to clear up and “accidents”!
