Or there any ordinances against leaving your pets in the car with little or no ventilation during these 90 and 100 degree temps? If not, and you see a dog locked in a car with no air or appropriate ventilation who should you call?

The City of Frisco Animal Control Ordinance states:
No owner/custodian or person shall leave any animal in a standing or parked vehicle in such a way as to endanger the animal's health, safety or welfare, including but not limited to, dangerous temperature, lack of food, water or attention, or confinement with a dangerous animal. Any animal control officer, peace officer, fire personnel or other city-authorized person is authorized to use reasonable force to remove an animal, including but not limited to, the breaking of a vehicle window, whenever it appears the animal's health, safety or welfare is, or soon will be, endangered and said animal may be impounded.
Please call the Police Department at (972) 292-6010 if you see such an incident.
