Dog warning for Appleby Horse Fair
Published at 09:32, Wednesday, 04 June 2014
The RSPCA has urged anyone heading to the Appleby Horse Fair this weekend to leave their dogs at home.
Officials have reminded anyone attending of the dangers of leaving the animals in hot cars.
Rob Melloy, RSPCA chief inspector, said: “Dogs die in hot cars. It can and will happen to you if you leave your dog in a hot car on a warm day.”
Mr Melloy added that any canines seen in hot cars would be removed.
He added: “Dogs shouldn’t be at the fair at all, it is no place for them. Horses can get spooked by dogs and dogs can get trampled by horses.”
A vet station will be at the fair for any animals which need attention.
