Fireworks Send Nearly 100 Dogs Running For Shelters During Fourth Of July Weekend
Monday, July 7, 2014
Did your dog run away due to fireworks this Fourth of July?
Nearly 100 dogs were brought in to county animal shelters after running away from home this Independence Day — three times what shelters see during a normal weekend.
“Check shelters across your neighborhood. Dogs don’t know boundaries and a dog in its sheer terror may have run from your community into another city, so check that shelter as well,” said Dan DeSousa, Department of Animal Services deputy director.
