More runaway and lost pets end up in animal shelters over the 4th of July holiday than any other time of year, as pets become frightened and panic from the noise and excitement of fireworks
If your pet has been microchipped, you have a very good chance of being reunited. Call your veterinarian and/or the microchip company right away to make sure the microchip's contact information is up-to-date.
