Pet safety for the Fourth of July
SIERRA VISTA — Fireworks are a high point for any Independence Day celebration, but pets can become distressed by the additional noise and commotion. In fact, animal shelters across the nation are accustomed to receiving “July 4th” dogs—dogs who run off during the fireworks celebration and are rescued by animal control officers or good samaritans.
"Pets are family members, and it’s understandable that we want to include them in our holiday plans," said Jeff Ingerson, Animal Control Officer. "However, most pets will be more comfortable staying at home. Spare your furry friends the stress of fireworks, crowds and fanfare on the Fourth of July."
