Fire works advice with New Years Eve upon us

Submitted by Steve on 15:36, 18th Dec, 2014 | 0

On 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.

Tomorrow many will mark the 5th November with firework parties.

The GSPCA have launched a calendar and ask those having public and private displays to let us know so we can have a central location for those around Guernsey know where and when these events take place.  The calendar is linked to the GSPCA Twitter and Facebook pages so that reminders are sent out earlier in the day during these events.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "Every year during the periods of fireworks both pet animals and wildlife are put at risk."

This week at the GSPCA we have launched a new calendar specifically to help pet owners and those affected by fireworks in Guernsey.

The calendar has been embedded in a number of our web pages and is dedicated to being a central location to check when there are firework displays in Guernsey.

Over the last few years when we have been made aware of firework events we have used our social media to help inform pet owners to help them prepare their animals and pets to reduce their stress and problems they can cause.
