A dog owner has been charged with animal cruelty after leaving the pet in a hot car for nearly an hour Monday afternoon outside Fox Valley Mall in Aurora, officials say.

Aurora officers rescued the dog, and the city's animal control workers transported it to a local veterinarian, where it was to spend the night, according to a police department Facebook post.

 

The owner had been shopping inside the mall, the post said. Authorities did not identify the owner.
