Fireworks and Pets:
State law allows for Fireworks on the 4th of July. BUT not everyone likes fireworks. Remember our pets are more sensitive to loud noises, flashing lights and strong smells. It is best to leave your pets safely indoors, preferably with a radio or TV turned on to soften jarring noises. Below are more tips to help keep your pets safe.
