Happy 4th of July week! 4th of July is all about family and friends, BBQs, beaches, the sun, and some fireworks. Unfortunately, the fireworks scare the home out of the dogs and many dogs run away. Shelters are the most crowded during this time which leads an increase to the euthanization rate. Let's make sure that our dogs have the freedom that we get to enjoy by keeping a close eye on them and making sure that they are microchipped and have a collar with your current contact information. If you're looking for some 4th of July gear, might I suggest companies that give back to dogs which you can check out here.
