BOISE, Idaho — The Idaho Humane Society has partnered with Boise Police and St. Luke's for the Look Before You Lock Campaign aimed at preventing death and injury from animals and children being left in vehicles in hot temperatures.

As part of the Idaho Humane Society's Humane Education initiative, they will spend today teaching children about how quickly temperatures rise in vehicles. Children attending the camp will be baking dog treats on the dashboards of cars and taking internal car temperatures from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The humane society will show how quickly the dog treats will be cooked simply by leaving the dough in vehicles parked both in the sun and in the shade.

The Boise Police Department will have a police officer and a K9 on scene over the course of the day.
