Please keep me safe and happy on the 4th of July!

They don’t realize that the explosive sounds and lights are manufactured and nothing to be afraid of, and they often will try to escape the frightening spectacle, ending with them injured or in a shelter.

Let’s commit this year to making sure that our pets will not suffer panic due to this otherwise festive holiday.
