This is the moment police officers rescue two distressed dogs locked inside their owner’s car on a scorching hot day.

The Queensland Police Service took to its Facebook page on Sunday to share the confronting scenes as a warning to others that dogs should never be left inside cars.

‘Why would you leave a dog, let alone two, in a car with only the window cracked?’ the police service said.

In the footage from December 2016, the police are seen reaching inside the car to rescue the two dogs, who appear to be poodle crosses.

‘You’re not doing very good in there are you? It’s very hot,’ an officer can be heard saying.

The owner left the dogs for two-and-a-half hours, according to the Queensland Police. 

They were locked inside the car for more than an hour before the police discovered them. 

Fortunately the dogs survived, and were not seriously injured.

‘The reason we’re here is because your dogs were locked in the car, they were hot and distressed,’ the officer said.

‘That is not acceptable, you’ve been warned about this three times prior, about not leaving your dogs in your car, it’s on our system.’

The Queensland Police Service said it posted the footage as a reminder to others leaving dogs inside cars was never OK.

‘While this incident is from December 2016, we have had a number of calls over the last few days for incidents of this exact nature,’ the service said.

‘It is frustrating to see people aren’t getting the message.’ 

Leaving a dog unsupervised in a car can be an offence under the Animal Care and Protection Act in Queensland. 

The police said the RSPCA took over the investigation, and took action against the woman for leaving her two dogs inside the car.
