HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The loud noises and bright lights that make the Fourth of July so exciting for people can mean stress for pets.
"Fireworks noise and lights can be scary for animals," say Joe Adarna, Hawaiian Humane Society admissions manager. "Keep your animals indoors to keep them safe. More importantly, people should have their pets microchipped and keep their current contact information registered with Hawaiian Humane and pets should have a collar with an ID tag."
The Hawaiian Humane Society encourages pet owners to keep their companion animals in a safe place indoors and not to leave pets outside and unattended.
They would also like to remind owners to resist taking your pets to fireworks displays as most animals don't enjoy noisy spectacles.
