Did You Know That More Pet's Are Lost on 4th of July
Than Any Other Day Of The Year?
Like many Americans, you may be planning to have a festive Fourth of July. Along with your social distancing gathering, no July holiday celebration would be complete without enjoying the fireworks that celebrate the birth of our nation. And while many professional fireworks displays have been cancelled this year, there will likely be many locals in your neighborhood who may be setting off their own firework displays.
Unlike people, pets don't associate the noise, flashes, and burning smell of pyrotechnics with celebrations and often panic at the loud whizzes and bangs they produce. More pet's go missing this time of year than any other as they frantically run in fear to escape the commotion and chaos that these festivities bring. Here are some helpful tips to keep your pet happy, healthy, and safe this 4th of July.

Keep your pet at home.
-> NEVER use fireworks or sparklers around your pet.
-> Keep your pet away from glow jewelry.
