Great info to pass along Tracy! I would hate for anyone to lose a pet this coming 4th,,,most animals do freak out over firework
Glad you saw my post -- didn't know if it got "published" :-)
I have already seen several posts on Craigslist and Facebook about a lost dog who got spooked by fireworks and bolted and it's not even the 4th yet!! This holiday has proven to be the busiest for shelters around the country. I have volunteered at several shelters and it is truly amazing the number of intakes there are in the weeks following the 4th of July. PLEASE urge all of your friends, family and neighbors to keep their pets INSIDE once the sun goes down and the fireworks have started and NOT to take their pets with them to watch fireworks. Even if a dog is on a leash, if scared enough they can and will bolt. Small dogs can easily wiggle out of their harnesses as well.
Thanks, Diane! I hope the word is getting out to the public!!
Thank you for sharing this info with us, Diane. We are telling everyone!
This was great info to share. My big dog that is a "bully" is terrified of thunder and fireworks.
