Front Street Animal Shelter prepares for the busiest week of the year

Front Street Animal Shelter prepares for the busiest week of the year

Shelters across the country are bracing themselves for the increase of stray animals that escape the safety of their homes in fear of fireworks.  While July 4th may be a time for BBQ’s, fireworks and homemade ice cream, it is less thrilling for the family pet. Loud booms and the smell of acrid smoke is often enough to instill panic in some animals, who will do anything to escape the noise and perceived threat.  Area pet lovers are encouraged to take some precautions in advance of the big day and the Front Street Animal Shelter is offering simple, easy and affordable solutions to keep our four legged friends safe.

 County Animal Shelter wants your pets to remain happy and safe in their homes

Sacramento, Calif. – The Sacramento County Animal Care Facility reminds pet owners to plan ahead for the coming 4th of July holiday and keep dogs and cats safe in their own homes.

“Our stray animal population spikes during the 4th of July period. The fireworks stands are open and people celebrate early,” said Dave Dickinson, Animal Care Director. “Dogs and cats get scared and escape. Plan in advance to keep your pets calm and safe in their homes and avoid having to make a trip to the shelter to find your pet.”

Safety Tips:

Resist the urge to take your pet to fireworks displays. You’re asking for trouble, as most pets have a very strong fear of loud, sudden noises which are like to evoke their “flight or fight mode.” Fireworks can cause true terror in a pet.
