July 5th is the BIGGEST intake day of the year for animal shelters because many dogs, frightened by July 4th firework displays, escape their yards and homes. We are working with our NKLA coalition partner, Angel City Pit Bulls (ACPB), in helping them to prepare for this day and find foster parents for pit bulls for the weekend, since the shelters are expected to be at max capacity. ACPB will cover all expenses for the foster animal. We just need your HELP in providing a loving, safe environment. If you are interested in becoming a foster parent, please email: and click the link below for more details.

4th of July Animal Safety Tips by AVMA:

  • Make sure your pets – cats and dogs alike – have identification tags with up-to-date information.
  • If your pets aren't already microchipped, talk with your veterinarian about microchipping. If they are, make sure your contact information in the microchip registry is up-to-date.
  • Keep your pets inside if you or your neighbors are setting off fireworks.
  • Avoid the urge to feed your pets table scraps or other foods intended for people. Be especially careful to keep them away from these common foods that are actually toxic.
  • Remember that too much sun and heat (and humidity!) can be dangerous to pets. Keep them inside when it's extremely hot/humid; make sure they have access to shady spots and plenty of water when outdoors; and know the signs that a pet may be overheating.
  • Never leave your pet in your car when it's warm outside. Vehicle interiors heat up much faster than the air around them, and even a short time in a locked car can be dangerous to pets.
  • Check your yard for fireworks debris before allowing pets outside to play or relax. Even if you didn't set off fireworks yourself, debris can make its way into your yard, where curious animals may pick it up to play with or eat.
