AMERIPRISE AUTO & Home insurance, a Costco Services provider, wants you to be aware that each summer there are horrific stories about children and pets being left in hot, locked cars. According to kidsandcars.org, 38 children die in hot cars each year. One is too many. The numbers are higher for pets, with hundreds dying each year, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.
