Pets are terrified of fireworks, and often panic at the loud whizzes and bangs they produce.

Because of this, the American Humane Association reports that July 5th is the busiest day of the year for animal shelters. Many pets are found lost on the street with no IDs, sometimes not even the collar. Here are some tips to avoid the situation your pet would become one of them...

A few tips for tonight you should follow for your pet's safety:

1) Take your pets for a long walk before the firework madness

starts. The exercise helps to reduce your pet's stress.

2) Keep your dogs and cats inside and make them comfortable

with some extra bedding. Sometimes even a smell of an article

of clothing from your laundry could help to comfort them.

3) Close all windows to keep them away from all the noises

and don't forget to close the doors in case they would panic.

4) Check their collars and be sure they are wearing

their name tags or IDs.

5) Create a calming environment. Surround your furry friends

with their favorite toys and familiar objects. Get stocked with snacks and treats

they like and distract them with it.

...and then, finally,

have a happy and safe

Fourth of July!
