Keep Pets Inside On July 4th!


July 5th is one of (if not the highest) euthanasia days at the municipal shelters as they become overfilled to capacity on July 4th. Families leave for the evening or (worse! are on vacation) with the dog in the yard without realizing that the noise can become so frightening, that dogs will dig under or jump over fences to flee the scary sounds. If you have a dog you keep outside (even just temporarily when you go out) — please bring them in!!! Make arrangements now— take them to an overnight pet hotel if you are going out to a party or can’t bring them in. Don’t wait to come home to find your dog is gone. Fireworks are terrifying for animals. Please spread the word -- Keep Pets Inside!
