CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – With the fourth of July approaching, those with the Humane Educational Society want to remind people to watch out for their pets during the fireworks.
Right now they are very full with more than 300 dogs.
Bob Citrullo, the executive director of the Human Educational Society, says there were a lot of animals that got spooked during the recent storms and got lost.
He suggests keeping dogs who get scared easily inside.
Citrullo adds there are other preventive measures to take just in case your pet runs off.
“We need people to put at a minimum collars and ID tags on their animals. So if they do get displaced over the Fourth of July and going forward with storms, we are able to reunite them fast,”Citrullo said.
Right now the Humane Educational Society has waived the adoption fee for large dogs, because they are so full.
