Fireworks and Pet Safety
For a dog or cat resting safely at home, the sounds and sights of fireworks could produce panic. This Fourth of July, help your pets combat their fear of fireworks with these tips from the City's Animal Welfare Committee:
If you see, hear, or suspect fireworks, please report the location of fireworks violators to 9-1-1. Make sure to report the location where fireworks are being shot at the time. Police have to observe the activity to take action to stop it. Residents may call 9-1-1 if they have specific location information to report. Unfortunately, it can be hard to pinpoint the location of the activity as some of the fireworks being used may be professional grade and they can be heard for miles. All area police patrols will be looking for violators to get them to stop.
