Keeping Your Pets Safe for Fourth of July

Snap, Crackle GONE:
Keeping Your Pets Safe for Fourth of July

Did you know we took in over 450 lost and frightened animals last year during Fourth of July weekend? Dogs have jumped fences, broken chains, torn through screen doors and even leaped through glass doors – sometimes seriously injuring themselves – during fireworks. Make sure your pets are safe and comfortable this Fourth of July, with these tips:

  • Keep your pets indoors at all times – not just in the yard, as they can still get loose
  • Keep your pets on a leash, and close, if you will be with them outdoors
  • If animals will be inside, drown out loud sounds with some light music or television
  • Make sure your pets are properly identified with a microchip (collars and tags can fall off), in case they run off

30% more pets are lost during 4th of July than any other day of the year. All lost animals get brought to The Animal Foundation and should be the first place you check. If your best friend is missing, contact us immediately at our main campus at 655 N Mojave Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89101.
