It is important to leave your pets at home if you decide to go to parties, fireworks displays, parades or other large events. The unfamiliar places and noisy fireworks can cause pets to become unnerved and possibly runaway. 

It is a good idea to think about putting your pet in an escape-proof room during events such as July 4th celebrations.

Remember to let your pets get near a barbeque grill if it is being used or still hot from use.

Pets can be curious so it is crucial to keep even the smaller fireworks away like sparklers and glow sticks.
