The Gloucester Township Police Department released the following information about keeping your pets safe on New Year's Eve.
While New Year’s Eve celebrations are fun for us humans, our furry companions can easily become scared during the festivities. Many pets become scared at the sound of fireworks or noisy music, and you can risk your pet trying to run away – in fact many shelters see a greater number of lost dogs following the holidays.
The Gloucester Township Police Department reminds you of these helpful tips this New Years Eve:
Confine your pets. For animals that are crate trained, it provides a sense of security for them. ...
Turn on the Radio or TV. ...
Give them exercise. ...
Distract them with toys or a treat. ...
Speak with your veterinarian. ...
Leave the neighborhood. ...
