Police body cam video that shows officers and firefighters rescuing two dogs from the extreme heat in Georgia has gone viral.

On July 2 in Roswell, Georgia, it was a sweltering 89 degrees outside when police responded to a call about a dog trapped in a Chevy Impala that was parked in a movie theater's parking lot, WSB-TV2 reported. "What you are about to see is actual bodycam footage of the rescue and medical treatment of two dogs suffering from heat stroke".

On Sunday, officers were called to a movie theater parking lot after a small dog was left in a auto in the direct sunlight.

"167 on the front seat", the officer said as he held up a thermometer. Now a woman from the Macon area is facing animal cruelty charges. "That animal was cowering under a auto seat, he was hiding, so they didn't even see that dog at first". "There's no way you should have had them dogs in the auto". A police officer told her they got to the dogs just in time to save their lives, and she said she appreciated it. "There was no shade for this vehicle", Roswell Police Officer Lisa Holland said. In the video released by authorities the owner, who was not identified, could be heard telling police that she hadn't been out to check on the dogs since leaving them about an hour earlier. "I mean, it's a very traumatic situation for the officer, actually and for the dogs".

Within 18 seconds, police were on the scene to rescue both dogs, according to local NBC affiliate WXIA. Her dogs were seized as "evidence" by Fulton County Animal Control and will remain in their custody until the woman's court appearance in August.

She was also recorded on the body camera admitting she had not been out to check on the dogs.
