HAYTI, MO (KFVS) - The CHS-PAWS animal shelter in Hayti, Mo. is warning pet owners to take a few extra precautions this Fourth of July holiday.

Manager Erma Page said some animals are easily frightened by the sounds of fireworks and fireworks should not be shot off, at or around the animal.

Some extra precautions pet owners can take include:
  • keeping your animal put up during the firework season
  • making sure your animal has an identification car in case they get scared and run away
  • keeping a TV or radio on to drown out the noise of the fireworks
  • leaving your pet at home while you attend firework displays
Page also said to make sure outdoor pets have plenty of shade and water.

CHS-PAWS is offering water buckets if you need a new one.
