    • Prior to the day, be sure to ensure your animal’s microchip or tag information are up to date.
    • Loud, crowded fireworks displays are no fun for pets, who can become frightened or disoriented by the sound. Please resist the urge to take them to Independence Day festivities and opt instead to keep them safe from the noise in a quiet, sheltered, and escape-proof area at home.
    • Be sure to keep food/ alcoholic beverages out of your pet’s reach.
