Chef Hears About A Dog Dying In A Hot Car. What He Does In Response? Everyone Needs To See This
Austrian chef Rabie Hijazi is taking a stand for dogs in his neighborhood. All too often people decide to leave their dogs in the car when they go into stores or restaurants. Especially in the summertime, this can be incredibly dangerous. Cars get hot inside, and sometimes the thick air can be difficult for a dog to breath. Very often, they die. Rabie Hijazi heard a story just like this not too long ago.
Fidja, a boxer who was only 14 months old, was left in the car while her owners went to shop at IKEA. She was rescued, but then died at the hospital. Rabie wants to make sure that never happens at his restaurant Hayat, which is in Salzbur
He recently posted a letter in the restaurant’s window urging people to bring their dogs inside instead of leaving them in the car while the owners gets a "quick” bite to eat.
The sign says, "Dear Guest, Please do not leave your dog in the hot car just because you want to "quickly” get something to eat. Bring your dog with you. We have a large terrace with sandy beach and the "best friend of man” can stay and drink as much as he/she wants. – The Havat Team.”
People have really been taking to this idea. Rabie posted a picture of the sign on Facebook, and so far it has been shared an amazing 46,000 times!
There’s also a picture of the restaurant’s terrace/patio that does indeed have sand and nice chairs. Dogs would certainly be happy in a place like that! It’s great to see someone working to change the world that they live in. Small gestures like Rabie’s can make a huge difference in the lives of people and animals.
