FtWorth Service Dog

Devastated families still have questions after deaths of 3 service dogs in Fort Worth

The dogs’ trainer took the three to a veterinarian office, where she left the dogs in the car while she walked in to visit with coworkers. She left the car on with the air conditioning running and had a sensor that was supposed to go off if the car got too hot, the dog owners said.

However, the sensor was not working. The car died and the dogs were left in the nearly 100 degree heat, where they died. Fort Worth police are investigating the dogs’ deaths.

The program will accept only dogs and cats; no other animal will be allowed in the cargo hold area.

United also said it would stop transporting animals between May 1 and Sept. 30 for travel to and from Las Vegas, Palm Springs, Phoenix and Tuscon because of the extreme heat in those destinations during summer months.
