Update, July 11, 2023: Thanks to Psychology Today for this terrific article, written by dog book author Jessica Pierce, PhD.:

How Hot Is Too Hot When Leaving Your Dog In the Car,? Psychology Today, July 11, 2023

As described on this page, (archive here) existed from 2014-2020, and in that time, it became arguably the most respected, influential online resource in helping to prevent dogs from suffering in hot cars:

Unfortunately, the site was destroyed by its domain registrar's negligence.  Since then, I have been working to:

(1) Prepare the legal documentation to recover the damages I suffered (I'm very experienced in preparing litigation media)

(b) Rebuild the seven years of work that was lost as a result of this tragedy, at

As of this writing (April 30, 2023), this page primarily consists of:

  • Rradio interviews I participated in from 2014-2020
  • Incidents in which others cited, or used its key resources

As much as my busy schedule will allow, I will be working to ensure that becomes a useful asset for people and organizations throughout the world, to advance knowledge of the heatstroke danger to dogs, particularly when they're left in cars.

(2) Radio interviews

Many of these interviews were with Virginia radio stations, but as time went on, and these segments were shared online, I received requests from stations in other states to discuss  Here’s a sampling:

NEW: May 1, 2023 - Jon Sutz on “The Schilling Show” regarding WINA, Charlottesville, VA. 9 minutes.

  • Jon Sutz on “The Joe Thomas In The Morning Show,” regarding, June 17, 2022. WCHV, Charlottesville, VA. 9 minutes. (Note: This was the first radio interview I did in which I discussed how was destroyed by my domain registrar.)

  • Jon Sutz on “The Schilling Show” regarding, July 15, 2019. WINA, Charlottesville, VA. 10 minutes.

  • Jon Sutz on “Blanquita Cullom – The Hard Question,” regarding, November 8, 2018. WCGO, Chicago, IL. 10 minutes.
    (Notes: (1) I understand this show is/was aired on a national radio network. (2) The purpose of this interview was to discuss an investigative report I produced about the “official lies” that were being told about the “caravans” that were marching through Mexico to get to the US border. But as a fellow dog lover, Blanquita was intrigued by my recent book, "Saved By Shayna: Life Lessons From A Miracle Dog," and my site, so that’s where we started. This clip is edited to just feature the dog-related material.)

About Jon

I am a dog-loving visualization and graphic designer, writer and creative consultant. My professional bio is here. The most important, joyous job I’ve ever had, was as “dad” to Shayna, the “miracle dog” who helped to save my life after 9/11, and about whom I wrote my first book, “Saved By Shayna: Life Lessons From A Miracle Dog.” Read the Introduction here. See a short video about what made Shayna such an incredibly talented, inspiring and hilarious dog here. I created (and its predecessor site, to help raise awareness of the dangers of leaving a dog in a hot car. Learn about my creation of the HeatKills project here.
