    Keep pets home indoors in a safe place because this will help reduce noise level of the fireworks. It will also reduce the risk of your pet running away if he/she is spooked by loud noises.

  • Provide a safe “escape” place for your animal. Scared animals like to hide. Allow your pet a safe place to snuggle to help ease their stress and calm fears of the loud sounds he/she is hearing.
  • If you must be outside with your pet, use a leash or carrier  and keep it on at all times. This will help prevent your pet from running away from you if they’re afraid of fireworks or thunderstorms.
  • Make sure your pet ID is current. Having an updated ID tag or microchip on your pet will help local Animal Services return your pet to you.
