Whether the neighborhood teens are throwing firecrackers on your
street… or your entire community is enjoying “the exuberant splendor” of a big fireworks display, your pet
can become frantic and run away, trying to find a safe haven.

More pets go missing around the 4th of July than any other time of year,
and noisy fireworks are to blame.

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. That’s why we’re hoping to reach more pet owners and
reduce these trends with our infographic.”

PetAmberAlert’s July 4th Lost Pets Infographic called “Afraid on the 4th – Keeps Pets Safe”
puts a spotlight on the alarming statistics and provides tips on how pet
owners can protect their pets.

Here are 4 simple tips on how to keep pets safe… plus a bonus tip on how
pet owners can have a better chance of finding a lost pet.

1) Stay inside: Try to keep your pet indoors at all times during holiday
celebrations. Ideally, someone stays home with your pet. Also keep
your dog leashed when going out for walks.

2) Make them feel safe: Comfort your pets with petting, hugging, talking
to them in a soothing voice, providing a treat and staying nearby if
possible. Make sure they can access their crate or “safe place.” Also
ask your veterinarian or local pet retailer about natural calming
products, anxiety wraps and other products that can help.

3) Avoid the noise. Try to drown out the fireworks sounds as much as
possible by closing windows, playing music or turning on the TV.

4) Act normal! Your pet takes cues from your and your family’s actions. It
will help if you go about your normal routine as much as possible, talking and playing with your pet
as usual.

5) Protect your pet before the fireworks begin. There are a number of lost-pet devices and services
available today, and it’s wise to be proactive in case your pet gets lost. Among the various pet-finder
services available, the Pet Amber Alert ID Tag/Pet GPS combines Amber Alert technology with a QR
Code and pet GPS to help MORE lost dogs, cats and even birds return home safely.

By following these tips, hopefully fewer families will face the heartbreak of losing a pet during the July 4th

    Keep your dogs inside. Bullshit.

    When they are inside the sound of the fireworks freaks them out more and if they are untrained or just stupid then they’d bark their head off then if you were to just take them with you out in the open where there are plenty of distractions to take their minds off of the fireworks. Caesar Millan says they have one track minds.

    Just take them for a walk while watching the fireworks and let them sniff around. The only time they’d get overly excited is if they see another dog.
