According to WILX, there is currently no law in Michigan that forbids leaving animals unattended in cars but that could soon change. The Michigan Senate Judiciary Committee is meeting today to review a bill that was introduced last year that would make it illegal to leave pets unattended in a car if the conditions could endanger the animal's health which includes extreme temperatures and lack of food or water.

If the bill is passed, the fines could range from $350 to $5,000 and the possibility of jail time. Click here to see what the possible fines and charges could be for leaving a pet in a car in Michigan.
