The Fourth of July holiday can be a very frightening and even dangerous time for your four-legged friends. Find out what you can do to keep Fido safe!

For us humans, the Fourth of July can be a lot of fun but for our pets, it can be traumatic and even life threatening. According to statistics animal control facilities see a massive influx of lost pets around the Fourth of July holiday. According to PetAmberAlert:

According to national statistics, animal control officials across the country see a 30-60% increase in lost pets each year between July 4th and 6th. In fact, July 5th is one of the busiest days of the year for shelters.

Mark Jakubczak, Certified Pet Detective and Founder, PetAmberAlert™, is committed to increasing the chance of beloved lost pets returning home. He said, “Sadly, only 14% of lost pets are returned to their owners, according to nationwide statistics. And worse, 30-60% of lost pets are
euthanized because they cannot be properly identified and returned to their owners.

 

So what are some ways that you can keep your pet safe this holiday weekend, and ensure that it is an enjoyable experience for everyone in the family, including your pets? Take a look at this from PetAmberAlert
