[ARCHIVED] 4th of July Pet Tips from the Cornelius Animal Shelter

Pets and Fireworks

Bring your pet inside before the fireworks start. Many pets are lost during Fourth of July festivities because they are running away from noise.

Put your pet in a quiet, dark place. A room where none of the fireworks flashes can be seen or heard and a place that is familiar.

Distractions can help, like a treat or favorite chew toy!

Background noise can help ease the situation. Nothing too loud; soothing music or keeping the television on.

If your pet goes missing in the Cornelius area, please call the Cornelius Animal Shelter at 704-237-3602.
