Remember Pet Safety during the 4th of July

Remember Pet Safety during the 4th of July

 County Animal Shelter wants your pets to remain happy and safe in their homes

Sacramento, Calif. – The Sacramento County Animal Care Facility reminds pet owners to plan ahead for the coming 4th of July holiday and keep dogs and cats safe in their own homes.

“Our stray animal population spikes during the 4th of July period. The fireworks stands are open and people celebrate early,” said Dave Dickinson, Animal Care Director. “Dogs and cats get scared and escape. Plan in advance to keep your pets calm and safe in their homes and avoid having to make a trip to the shelter to find your pet.”

Safety Tips:

Resist the urge to take your pet to fireworks displays. You’re asking for trouble, as most pets have a very strong fear of loud, sudden noises which are like to evoke their “flight or fight mode.” Fireworks can cause true terror in a pet.

Puppy says 'I Love You'

SACRAMENTO, CA - A 4-month-old Chihuahua puppy with a special talent is up for adoption at the Sacramento SPCA shelter.

Bitty was a stray found in Elk Grove and turned over into the SPCA's care, SPCA spokesperson Tracie Popma said.

A customer at the shelter saw Bitty and said she used to have a similar dog who could say, "I Love You." Popma said the customer said, "I Love You" to the puppy and Bitty mimicked her.

Check the video below of the puppy speaking:

If you are interested in adopting Bitty,  you can come down to the shelter on 6201 Florin Perkins Road, Sacramento.

Great little pup looking for a home! Bunny is about five-months-old and has been here at the shelter since April.
