Remember Pet Safety during the 4th of July

Remember Pet Safety during the 4th of July

 County Animal Shelter wants your pets to remain happy and safe in their homes

Sacramento, Calif. – The Sacramento County Animal Care Facility reminds pet owners to plan ahead for the coming 4th of July holiday and keep dogs and cats safe in their own homes.

“Our stray animal population spikes during the 4th of July period. The fireworks stands are open and people celebrate early,” said Dave Dickinson, Animal Care Director. “Dogs and cats get scared and escape. Plan in advance to keep your pets calm and safe in their homes and avoid having to make a trip to the shelter to find your pet.”

Safety Tips:

Resist the urge to take your pet to fireworks displays. You’re asking for trouble, as most pets have a very strong fear of loud, sudden noises which are like to evoke their “flight or fight mode.” Fireworks can cause true terror in a pet.
