Keep Pets Safe This 4th of July

Did you know July 5th is the busiest day at pounds? More animals get loose on the 4th of July than any other day. The 4th can be a frightening day for animals. Loud explosions coming from unknown sources (fireworks) can have your animals scrambling to get loose and find a secure place.  

Please take these necessary precautions for your pets. 

-Make sure all animals are wearing identification tags, and are microchipped. 

-Keep pets indoors in a spot they feel secure in. Do not drag them to firework festivities. 

-Play calming music for your pet or leave the tv on to drown out the sound of fireworks. 

-Keep pets clear of barbecues, and citronella candles.

-Give your pet a treat or toy to keep them happily distracted.
