Independence Day is upon us! The most patriotic celebration of the year is this week, and Americans nationwide prepare to decorate their yards, stay cool in the heat, barbeque up a feast and shoot off some fireworks. The 4th of July is the day each year that allows us to let loose while we celebrate this great holiday; however, we are not the only ones getting loose! Each 4th of July, shelters see an influx of stray animals as a result of pets running away when they hear the loud fireworks.

While shelters do prepare for this, there are tips for pet owners to avoid this happening altogether. Here are just a few tips for keeping your pet calm provided by Los Angeles Animal Services:
*If possible, keep pets indoors or confined to a secure area. Never tether an animal because it can lead to more harm or potential death.

*Double check yard gates to make sure that pets cannot escape.
*Make sure that pets are wearing identification, including the name and telephone number of the current owner, or a microchip.

Last but not least, the best way to keep a pet calm during fireworks is to go in and sit with them until the fireworks are over – they will like that best!

Remember, Fourth of July is the busiest holiday for animal shelters and veterinarians who treat escaped animals hit by cars.

Keep these tips in mind this holiday and spread the knowledge! Let’s keep our animals happy and safe.
