Fulton Homes 'Don't Fur-Get Your Pet' Campaign
Reminds Pet Owners Never to Leave Their
Furry Friends in a Hot Car


Tempe-based homebuilder partners with KMLE to keep pets safe from the dangers of summer heat

Don't Fur-get Your Pet


Fulton Homes and KMLE want to remind valley residents of what can happen in just a few minutes to a pet in a hot car. According to PETA, animals can sustain brain damage or even die from heatstroke in just 15 minutes. Sadly, some people still think it is okay to leave their dogs in a car while they run errands or even do something as menial as gabbing a quick coffee. However, it is misunderstood just how crucial it is to keep your pets cool during summer months.

Doug Fulton, the CEO of Fulton Homes, explains that this public service campaign with KMLE is designed to raise awareness for valley residents on the impacts we can have on our canine friends. "We love our families and we love our dogs," said Fulton. "People simply don't understand that it takes mere minutes for a dog to begin suffering from heatstroke or brain damage while being left in the car, even if the windows are partially down or the car parked in the shade."

The valley-homebuilder and KMLE are teaming up to raise awareness of the harm that can be done to your pets by leaving them in a car by educating radio listeners as well as hosting remotes. On the last Friday of the month, from June to August, Nina D will host a remote focused on educating pet owners. With the additional help of local valley firefighters and women, attendees will be able to participate in educational demonstrations and even receive a portable water bowl for their lucky pet.

Radio host and owner of three rescue dogs, Nina D, who hosts 107.9 KMLE from 1 pm until 7 pm, explains the impact that this promotion is going to have. "What I have found that really sticks with me is that we really connect to other people through our dogs. The American Veterinary Medical Association has found that hundreds of pets die or experience permanent damage every year from being left in a hot car," says Nina. "It is very important that we spread the message about how warm the inside of a car can get even with mild outdoor temperatures," she continued.
