Your favorite part about July 4 might the the fireworks, but your pet might not say the same!

Dogs and cats have sensitive ears, and scheduled fireworks celebrations and impromptu displays from neighbors can frighten your pets who don’t understand that these noises are a celebration, not danger.

During this holiday season, make sure your pet is wearing his or her identification at all times in case they do get outside unsupervised. Also, make sure safe, quiet places (like a bathroom or under a bed) are available to them so they can feel secure during noisy times.

If you know when fireworks are scheduled, it is best to keep your pets inside, so they hide in your home rather than run away or hide outside.

Fireworks are illegal in the City of Alexandria.

Update: Pepone has been found!

Keep an eye out for this pup! His name is Pepone (Pehpawn), and he's an orange and white Roan Brittany, 3 years old and 45 lbs. He escaped looking for his foster mom, who is on vacation. If you see him, sit or kneel down (he's pretty shy) so you don't scare him off. Contact Alexandria Animal Services immediately at 703-746-4444.
