Fireworks a danger to humans and pets
With the Fourth of July approaching, fireworks safety is an important issue for humans and dogs alike.
“We do have lost animals that take off every Fourth of July because they are afraid of fireworks and loud noises,” said Roberta Shoaf, executive director of the DeKalb County Animal Welfare Shelter in Genoa.
“We get more calls about missing dogs than we have for found dogs,” Shoaf added. She said the shelter gets reports of six to eight dogs each year who got disoriented and frightened by fireworks, and that dogs sometimes bite strangers out of fear or run away blindly to escape the noise.
