Don't forget to protect your pets on the 4th of July!

The Fourth of July holiday is right around the corner, and in all of the excitement and people-hubbub, it’s easy to forget about pets.

Fireworks can be terrifying for some cats and dogs, according to the Humane Society. Dogs and cats tend to have super-sensitive ears, and the sounds of fireworks going off can make them feel like they are under attack. They respond by retreating, hiding and worse, running away. According to Humane Society CEO Beth Ward, more dogs run away on the Fourth of July than on any other day. The Humane Society of the United States reports that animal shelters across the country are used to receiving “July 4th Dogs:” dogs who run off during fireworks celebrations and are rescued by animal control officers or helpful citizens who take them to the safety of a local shelter. To prevent your dogs from panic, we’ve compiled this list of precautions to protect your pet this Fourth of July, so everyone in your family can enjoy a fun and safe holiday!
