New Year’s Eve fireworks: Plan now to keep your pets safe

December 1, 2016

New Year’s Eve is only a month away. It’s a celebratory time for humans, but can be the most terrifying night of the year for our pets.

Over summer, hundreds of pets will flee their homes in fear of fireworks and thunderstorms, putting them at risk of becoming lost or injured.

It’s important to plan now to ensure your pet’s safety and well-being during fireworks and thunderstorms, rather than waiting until these events actually occur.

Our Fireworks, Storms and Your Pet fact sheet has tips on what to do before and during these events to keep your pets safe and help them cope.
