Don't forget the fireworks and ensuring your pets are safe on New Years Eve

Submitted by Steve on 16:02, 16th Dec, 2015 | 0

On New Years Eve at midnight to celebrate the New Year many will be setting off fireworks, so please think of your pets and animals around you.

Every year the GSPCA are called out and receive stray dogs and cats during periods of fireworks, which have either escaped or run off due to being scared by the loud bangs they make.

Sadly less than 45% of the stray dogs and cats are microchipped that are found as strays and brought to the GSPCA, and even less have collars with tags.
