Independence Day . . . the 4th of July. BBQ. Horseshoes. Poolside lounging. It's all fun and games until the fireworks hit and many of our pets go into fight or flight mode . . .
Though this day comes around every year, without fail our community, the Ojai Valley, struggles to calm our fearful fur-kids and act desperately to reunite lost loved ones with their families. Here are 5 steps to help us enjoy the holiday by being pro-active with our critters.
For those harder to catch cases, one of our Ojai community members, Jennifer Kusch of Tigger's Angel Paws, is putting together a task force to help reunite these lost pets with their loved ones on this special holiday. She's gathering traps, printing generic flyers, and preparing a volunteer team of gentle spirits to get out and help guide these kiddos home. She'll need a brave team to help locate the pets, knock on doors, and hand out/post flyers. If you're up to the task and would like to join forces with her and a team of helpers, she can be reached at 805.535.5012.
Now you're prepared--enjoy! For those of you who are away, The Peaceful Pup team is looking forward to spending a safe and peaceful 4th with your fur kiddos. Greta the Redbone Coonhound says: "Fireworks are soooo overrated. Netflix and chill --that's how we roll. ;^)"
