A woman from Vaughan is now facing charges after leaving her dog in a hot car, while she ran into a Costco.

The 10-month-old golden retriever was rescued around 6:30 on Monday evening, in a parking lot at 71 Collosus Drive, near Weston Road and Highway 7.

Police say it was in obvious distress. It was lethargic, panting heavily and had no water.

It was just as cops were about to break the window of the 4-door Toyota Corolla, that the owner showed up.

31 year old Bei Wang has now been charged with cause unnecessary suffering to an animal. She'll be in court on July 24th.

The dog has been seized by Vaughan Animal Control.

York Regional Police are reminding you, that now the warm weather is here, you should never leave your pets unattended in your vehicle.
