Keeping pets safe this Guy Fawkes
Posted at 9:58am Sunday 05 Nov, 2017
While many of the big fireworks displays were let off last night, pet owners are being warned to look after their animals with Guy Fawkes officially being today.
SPCA Tauranga says SPCAs around New Zealand receive lots of calls about fireworks involving animal injuries, frightened animals, missing pets and occasionally, animal abuse.
“Remember to plan for your pets, large and small, to keep them happy and healthy,” says a post on the SPCA’s Facebook page today.
“Keep all pets indoors (move farm and small animals somewhere safe too!), create a safe place to hide away if they choose to (such as a crate or bed) and walk your dog early in the day today so they aren’t out during peak firework time.
“Give your pets extra love this Guy Fawkes as it can be a stressful and scary time for them. Sending love to all animals out there.”
