Second Chance for Pets Reminding to Protect Animals From Loud Noise of Fireworks

The 4th of July is among the highlights of the summer for people of all ages as fireworks will be going off all over central Illinois.


As much fun as the festivities are for people, most of our pets do not share the enthusiasm. Heather Wantland with Second Chance for Pets in DeWitt County is reminding to find shelter away from the noise for our animals this weekend.



Wantland says it never fails, the calls for lost pets will start days before the 4th of July as the professional-grade pyrotechnics get set off throughout the community. 



If you are setting off your own fireworks, she encourages finding the debris from those explosives and cleaning up as much of it as possible as the chemicals in them are very toxic, especially for animals.
