The New York State law regarding pets in cars can be found here. The first item in the law reads:
A person shall not confine a companion animal in a motor vehicle in extreme heat or cold without proper ventilation or other protection from such extreme temperatures where such confinement places the companion animal in imminent danger of death or serious physical injury due to exposure to such extreme heat or cold.The second reads:
Where the operator of such a vehicle cannot be promptly located, a police office, peace officer, or peace officer acting as an agent of a duly incorporated humane society may take necessary steps to remove the animal or animals from the vehicle.The following chart provides important information for those with dogs who enjoy outings in the car about how hot it can get inside a car--and how quickly it happens--when it is 70 degrees or warmer outside.
