important!!!! pet owners please read!!!!!!!
Sorry for the yelling, but I want as many pet owners to get this message before the 4th of July.
I work for a pet rescue business and July 5th is our busiest day of the year. This is because we get inunduated with phone calls first thing in the morning that pet owners' dog or cat is missing from the back yard. A chihuahua could probably jump a 6 ft fence or dig under a metal gate if scared enough by the sight and sound of fireworks. I haven't encountered an animal yet that enjoys fireworks.
Please bring your dogs, cats, rabbits, or any outdoor pet in for the evening and if you have to confine them to a room put the TV or radio on and turn the volume fairly loud to cover the sound and make sure the windows are covered. A box fan on high is a good source for sound too, anything to help disguise the noise.
And even if your pet is unhappy and scared, you will know where they are the next morning, but at least your furbaby will be safe.
Happy Fourth of July, folks! We have a lot to celebrate this year.
