Julie Johnson, the Executive Director of the Bakersfield SPCA, joined 23ABC to talk about how pets are affected during the Fourth of July weekend, and how you can help if you find a runaway pet.
Not only can fireworks be stressful on dogs during the 4th, they can also lead to dogs getting lost and separated from their pet parents.
Unfortunately, many pets get lost during the first week in July, especially on July 4. Even if you follow all of these tips, your stressed pet may find a way to get out of the house. Always keep an ID on your pet with updated information.
