Meet “Buddy Davis” – Official Office Cat & Feline Greeter at the NKC Tribune and Tribune Office Supply & Printing Office in the Davis Street Center (the plaza by Safeway) in Cle Elum. Buddy is a rescued feral cat found hanging outside the office in 2009. Not only has the staff adopted him, but he has developed a loyal fan base in the community.
- Buddy says “Please don’t leave my buddies in hot cars”
Buddy and the Tribune have partnered with Cle Elum, Roslyn, South Cle Elum Animal Control Officer Jacqueline Van Dongen, an anonymous donor and ARRF Animal Rescue to bring this FREE public service pet safety flyer to the community.
Buddy wants everyone to know just how quickly a vehicle, even with the windows down, can go from warm to a fatally hot oven for pets and children left there. For example, in only 10 minutes, a 70 degree outside temperature zooms up to 89 degrees, and reaches a scorching 104 degrees in just 30 minutes. And it only gets worse as the mercury rises. An 80 degree day becomes 114 inside the car in a half hour.
Feel free to download this free flyer to place in the window of your establishment, post at your event, distribute printed copies and share the link. The design was donated by Buddy and the NKC Tribune to use without restriction for the intended purposes.FREE DOWNLOAD - Pets in Hot Cars Flyer (1422 downloads)
