Kaxan says remember your pets on New Year’s EveDecember 31st, 2013 at 4:25 pm by Jim Spencer under Weather
After living on the streets when he was younger, our mascot Kaxan is quite fearless. But he wants everyone to know that a lot of his friends are really terrified of fireworks. Every New Year, hundreds of dogs and cats show up in area shelters after running away from fireworks. Statistics indicate that 80 percent of pets are frightened by fireworks.
Here’s an important Facebook message from Austin Pets Alive:
“Fireworks are the best,” said no dog or cat ever. As you’re thinking about your New Years Eve plans, remember the fireworks we love scare the bejeezies out of pets & lead them to run! Please keep your pets indoors and safe on New Years Eve!
