By Friends of Apache Junction Animal Control Please keep your animals inside your home this evening. More animals are lost and killed during times that loud noises like thunderstorms or fireworks are taking place. A few suggestions to keep your dog safe: 1) Place your dog or cat in an interior part of your house with a TV or radio on to muffle any outside noises. 2) Crate your dog or cat and/or supply a “den” for him or her to feel safe with lots of bedding. 3) Make sure your pet has their ID tags on or simply write your phone number on their collar.

Other suggestions include using a Thundershirt or make your own therapy wrap during times of stress http://vetmedicine.about.com/gi/o.htm?zi=1%2FXJ&zTi=1&sdn=vetmedicine&cdn=homegarden&tm=9&gps=101_5_1600_751&f=10&su=p1242.1.130.ip_p284.13.342.ip_p504.6.342.ip_&tt=2&bt=6&bts=7&zu=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.crvetcenter.com%2Fttouch.php or in severe cases, see your vet to see if your pet is a candidate for anxiety medications like Xanax.

We hope that you and your pets have a safe and fun New Year’s Eve!
