Santa Cruz County offers Fourth of July safety tips for pets

Published Wednesday June 29

SANTA CRUZ >> The Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter reminds pet owners about safety over the upcoming Independence Day holiday weekend. More animals are lost during the 4th of Jul celebrations than at any other time of the year.

Loud noises from fireworks frighten animals due to their heightened senses of hearing, and the animals will do anything to escape the noise.

This behavior is usually not predictable and out of character, and it may include chewing through a leash, jumping through screens and windows, digging under a fence, jumping over a wall, bolting away from the owner and even running into traffic.

• Don’t take your pet to fireworks displays.
