PETS, PEOPLE, AND FIREWORKS
Fireworks can cause a great deal of stress for some animals and people. Fear of loud sounds - fireworks, thunder, gunshots - are called noise phobias. For a pet, and for some people who are affected by loud noises, this may be a terrifying and uncomfortable time. Your pet cannot control their reaction to loud noises. If you have a pet or know someone who reacts poorly to fireworks, please make arrangements to assist in making this day easier for them.
If your pets are outdoors, please consider bringing them inside. It’s not uncommon for pets to break free from fenced yards if they become frightened by loud noise. Information on how to reclaim lost pets can be found at the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter's website.
IMPORTANT SAFETY REMINDER
Don't let your holiday plans be ruined by using illegal fireworks.
Fireworks are illegal in the City of Moreno Valley. Violators could face fees and fines of up to $3,500 and six months in jail.
Watch an important video message about illegal fireworks from Moreno Valley's Police and Fire Departments and the Animal Shelter.
