Gefährliche Sommerhitze: Tipps für Tierhalter

Angesichts der sommerlichen Temperaturen sollten Tierhalter besonders auch das Wohlergehen ihrer gefiederten und vierbeinigen Freunde im Auge haben. Das Bereitstellen von frischem und sauberem Trinkwasser in ausreichenden Mengen ist dabei längst nicht alles. Wie uns Menschen machen die hohen Temperaturen auch Tieren zu schaffen, Sonnenbrand und Kreislaufbeschwerden bis hin zum Hitzschlag sind keineswegs „Privilegien“ der Zweibeiner.

Wenn die Tiere zuhause bleiben sollte darauf geachtet werden, dass ihnen ein verdunkelter und kühler Raum als Rückzugsgebiet zur Verfügung steht. Insbesondere Vögel sollten der starken Sonne nicht schutzlos am Fenster ausgeliefert sein.

Für Katzen und auch Hunde hält der Tierschutzverein Österreich kühlende Tipps wie das Aufhängen feuchter Wäsche oder das Streicheln mit einem feuchten Tuch bereit. Beides sorgt durch die Verdunstung der Feuchtigkeit für einen Kühlprozess.

Auch der Deutsche Tierschutzbund hält hilfreiche Ratschläge parat. Eigentlich sollte es nicht mehr nötig sein Tierhalter darauf hinzuweisen, dass Hunde bei hochsommerlichen Temperaturen nichts im Auto verloren haben, die Realität beweist aber leider sehr oft noch das Gegenteil. Für die Tierhaltung erinnert der Tierschutzbund daran, dass dem Lauf der Sonne geschuldet aus dem schattigen Örtchen sehr schnell ein Platz hinter dem „Brennglas“ Fensterscheibe werden kann. Besser dunkelt man wie gesagt komplett ab, oder stellt Käfige mit entsprechend Abstand zum Fenster auf.

Ein wichtiger Hinweis noch für Katzenhalter: Gekippte Fenster sind ein Tabu. Immer wieder kommt es vor, dass sich die Tiere in der Öffnung einklemmen, nicht mehr selbst befreien können und qualvoll ersticken.

  4. Hello there! This blog post could not be written much better!
    Going through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He continually kept preaching about this. I am going to send
    this post to him. Pretty sure he will have a great read.
    Thanks for sharing!

  5. I’ve been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made
    good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful
    than ever before.

  6. Not surprisingly, single-use plastics (bottles, straws, cups, and other fast-food debris), represented two-thirds of the items collected. Looking specifically at the riverfronts, single-use plastics represented ninety percent of the total. Perhaps even more disturbing than the trash is the widespread infiltration of the plastic particles into soil and water. Allegheny CleanWays is adding the Pittsburgh findings into international databases to support global plastic minimization. Locally, AC is involved in educational and public relations programs and supports the implementation of projects such as storm drain “gratekeepers” and in-river trash collection devices. https://www.gcamerica.org/ In 2020, wildfires destroyed 86,000 acres on the San Francisco Peninsula, including Big Basin Redwoods State Park, California’s oldest state park. The highlight of this 18,000 acre preserve is the 4,300 acre grove of old-growth redwoods—by far the largest remaining continuous stand of Coast redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) in existence south of San Francisco. The fires burned through ninety-seven percent of the park, destroying trees, shrubs, undergrowth, wildlife, trails, bridges, and the park’s historic 102-year-old lodge, which had served as a welcome center for thousands of visitors every year. In an effort to help reopen the park, The Garden Club of America has awarded a $10,000 Restoration Initiative grant to Woodside-Atherton Garden Club. Partnering with Save The Redwoods League, the club will use grant funds in conjunction with the current renovation of the Rancho Del Oso Nature and History Center. The welcome center will serve as the only entrance into the old growth forest.

  7. On August 10, a derecho storm producing extremely destructive, 100 mph straight-line winds ripped across Iowa. Within its path was the Iowa Arboretum. The storm twisted, shredded, and uprooted more than 200 of the arboretum’s trees. Responding to a Restoration Initiative grant request from the Des Moines Founders Garden Club, The Garden Club of America has awarded $10,000 to support the cost of replanting many of the trees lost to the storm. Mark Schneider, executive director of the Iowa Arboretum, was working on site when the storm hit. Stepping outside once the storm passed, he described the scene as „heartbreaking.“ Of the more than 200 trees badly damaged in the storm, 133 of them would require removal. Many of these trees were valuable showcase trees that had taken forty to fifty years to grow, and were beloved by the arboretum’s members. https://www.gcamerica.org/ Large numbers of volunteers have shown up to help clean up the property, and the arboretum was able to have a partial reopening seven weeks after the storm, though the woodland trails are still closed. As with most nature centers this year, the Iowa Arboretum has been especially important as a refuge for social distancing, and with the help of the GCA’s grant, the organization will be able to move forward with replanting. The GCA established the Restoration Initiative in 2017 in response to the urgent needs caused by catastrophic storms, hurricanes, floods, fires, and mudslides to assist member clubs involved in public landscape restoration and conservation projects. Eleven grants, totaling $110,000, have been awarded to clubs in California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, and Texas.
