Your Pets and Fireworks Displays

Do not take your pet to fireworks displays!

Please make sure your pets are properly licensed and/or wearing identification tags, so that if they become lost, they can be returned promptly. Make sure that tags have current phone numbers and make sure you have a CURRENT photo of your pet!

Is your your pet microchipped? Make sure the microchip company has your current information.

Keep your pets inside in a comfortable and quiet area during Fourth of July festivities. If your pet is crate trained, then their crate is a great choice.

Never leave pets outside unattended, even in a fenced yard. In their fear, pets who normally wouldn’t leave the yard may escape and become lost.

If you know that your pet is seriously distressed by loud noises like thunder or fireworks, consult with your veterinarian before July 4th for ways to help alleviate the fear and anxiety he or she will experience during fireworks displays.
