It is difficult to know the right thing to do when you see a dog in a hot car, breaking the window should not be the first answer. It's a good idea to exhaust all other options before calling the police or damaging another person vehicle. According to the RSPCA if the temperatures reach 22 degrees celsius outside, then inside the car can reach a temperature of up to 47 degrees, which is extremely dangerous especially for an animal with a fur coat.
Always look around to see if the owners are nearby if their car is parked at a store take down the reg and ask the store to make an announcement with the registration number, if the car owner doesn't appear and you notice the dog is in distress and trapped in a hot vehicle then it's best to follow these steps.
