Summer Celebrations

Updated: Oct 5

aceBring on the barbecues, parades, and the fireworks. Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day are filled with fun, sun, and celebrations for people; but can be filled with hazards for our four-legged family members.

Celebrate 4th of July with your pets

More pets go missing on 4th of July than any other day of the year. July 5 is the busiest day of the year for shelters, which may be why the month of June was dubbed National Pet Microchip Awareness Month. When animals get spooked, their fight-or-flight response often takes over; they flee and get lost. Consider these recommendations when making your holiday plans:

  • Keep your pet indoors on the holiday (and through the weekend). Provide a long-lasting treat that will distract him from the noise and keep him comfortable if left alone.
