Keep pets safe during fireworks

Fireworks night is fast approaching and whilst this may be a very enjoyable time, many pets can be left feeling frightened and traumatised.

Fortunately there are steps people can take to ensure that a fun night doesn't cause animal suffering. Four Paws recommends keeping pets inside when it gets dark, turning on the radio or television to mask the noise of the fireworks and distracting animals with toys or small snacks.
