New Tennessee Law Allows People to Save Pets From Hot Cars

A new Tennessee law now allows people to break into hot cars if an animal is trapped inside — without fear of punishment.

The law, which went into effect on July 1st, extends the states' good Samaritan law from including just kids, to pets too.

It protects individuals from civil liability for any damages caused while trying to rescue a child or an animal in danger.

Woot for us! We really do love living in TN.
"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semihuman. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog." Edward Hoagland
"Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog."
