Police in the UK were called into action on Tuesday in order to rescue two dogs who were left trapped inside a car in sweltering conditions.
In a post on Twitter York Police said they were forced to smash the windows of the vehicle after the two dogs were found breathing heavily as temperatures topped 30C.
York Police say the two dogs who have since been transferred to the care of the RSPCA, were left inside the extremely hot car for more than half and hour.
However thankfully both dogs survived the horrific ordeal after concerned officers managed to break the driver side window and set the dogs free.
#PC1810 and PCSO 3680 have just rescued two dogs from a vehicle where the owners had left them for over half an hour in a car in the blazing hot sun. The window was smashed and the owners will be prosecuted by @RSPCAYORK. There is no excuse for this, I am utterly appalled…1/2 pic.twitter.com/xUMWUbzBVK

Following their rescue both dogs who were left badly shaken were covered in blanks and given some water before being transferred into the care of the local RSPCA centre.
It is understood the dogs were given a cold shower at the centre in order to cool their body temperature, although both dogs are said to be doing fine, the RSPCA say they were left dazed and badly shaken following the incident.
Police say they are currently investigating the incident and say the dogs owners will face prosecution.
