Shopping for a New Car? Consider Your Pet’s Safety

For many pet owners, their four-footed passengers are just as important as their two-footed ones, which is why Chevrolet is touting their vehicles’ safety features that will help keep your furry friend safe.

Nearly six in 10 people said they had
driven with their dog in the car at least once a month in the
past year, according to a 2011 AAA/Kurgo survey, which means when it comes to car shopping, you might want to think about your pet’s safety.

“From subcompact hatchbacks to full-size SUVs, Chevrolet vehicles today
provide plenty of choices to meet the needs of owners and pets of all
shapes and sizes,” said Charlotte Reed, a pet lifestyle expert and First
for Women pet solutions columnist.

Last month Reed showcased these features at the New York International Auto Show, and offered tips for pet owners on how to keep their pets safe when driving — whether it be on a short excursion to post office, or an extended summer road trip.
