Keeping your pets safe – fireworks

Fireworks will take place between 10-10:15pm. Fireworks can frighten pets. Pet owners nearby are recommended to prepare their pets to keep them calm and safe. It is recommended to keep your pet indoors before and during the fireworks. Closing curtains, playing music or having the TV on will help mask the light and noise from the fireworks.
