    You could try putting a pop bottle filled with ice in there for them to lean or lay next to.

    Maybe try some cold watermelon for them to nibble on in the afternoon.
    Also, you can try the watermisters that Walmart sells. I read that scratch raises their body heat ( Ian not sure if thats right) but don't chance it. I live in Texas so I understand the heat issue.
