(KFVS) - The Humane Society of Missouri has some Fourth of July safety tips for pets.
HEAT WARNING: Please remember when temperatures and heat indexes soar this week, pet owners are advised to take special precautions to keep pets safe. It is critical to never leave a pet in a parked car when the outside temperature is above 70 degrees. High temperatures can be deadly for pets left without a cool, shady place to rest and plenty of water.
Pets and Fireworks Don’t Mix: The loud crack and boom of fireworks can frighten animals and cause even the most obedient pets to behave out of character. A startled dog or cat may hide or try to escape the noise by digging under, chewing through or climbing over fences. To help make the holiday fun for humans and safe for pets, the Humane Society of Missouri has a few tips for this Fourth of July holiday.
