Tips for Pet Safety for July 4th Festivities
Andy's Paw Prints is encouraging pet owners to protect their pets this 4th of July. Pets are often afraid of fireworks, so take extra precautions from while fireworks are allowed to be discharged.
The July 4th holiday weekend is a busy time of the year at animal shelters. Fireworks are loud and bright, and our pets are not used to this. Pets can easily get scared and panic or run away trying to escape the noise.
We encourage you to:
• Make sure the animal is wearing proper identification. This includes a collar with a current City tag. Micro-chipping is another good way to protect your pet.
• Don’t leave pets outside to wait for you to return home. Dogs left in backyards often get frightened by fireworks and will climb or jump the tallest of fences. Dogs left on chains can injure themselves trying to get away.
• Don’t take pets with you to a fireworks display. This is frightening for them and they don’t know it’s a celebration. Secure your pets in the house or crate.
• Make sure someone stays with pets if you know fireworks or loud noises upset your pets. Scared dogs go into flight mode from the fear.
If you lose a pet or find a pet during the holiday weekend, contact Animal Control or your local Humane Society.
