A Danvers police officer rescued two dogs left in a parked car in the Liberty Tree Mall parking lot on Sunday morning, police said.

Officer Jarod Waterman arrived on the scene around 10:42 a.m. and waited for the owner of the vehicle for about a half an hour, Lieutenant James Lovell said.

The windows to the vehicle were cracked open, and when the owner did not return, Waterman decided to enter the vehicle and remove the dogs.

Waterman turned the dogs over to an animal control officer, Lovell said.

Both dogs were in good health.

Danvers police tweeted a warning about leaving pets unattended inside vehicles: “With temps near 90, cracking a window is not enough.”

Police are talking with the owner, and have not decided if the dogs will be returned, or if the owner will face charges, Lovell said.
