PENTICTON – As summer bakes on, some Penticton and area businesses are adding their names to a growing list of Okanagan stores that will let you bring your dog inside when it’s hot.

The list was started by Kelowna SPCA staff last week and within a few days readers added dozens of new names.

SPCA branch manager Sean Hogan says inside is the safest place for an animal when it’s hot, but praise is owed to all Okanagan businesses who let dogs cool off inside when it's just not possible to leave them home.
