Leave the dogs home.

Independence Day: dozens of dogs lose their way when they are frightened by the noise of the fireworks and the din of the celebrations.

Leave the dogs home.


Independence Day is a big holiday for the citizens of Israel, but to our sorrow it is also a very sad day for many dogs. While we express our joy in noisy celebration accompanied by music, plastic noise hammers, firecrackers and spectacular displays of fireworks, many frightened dogs run away out of fear of the loud noise, and become lost. This response of the dogs stems from their well developed senses of smell and hearing. The reception range of the tones and frequencies that they receive is greater than that of humans by at least five times, and therefore they are very frightened by what our ears pick up as powerful blasts.< br>
Every year on the eve of Independence Day and on the days following it dozens of lost dogs are brought to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Israel – Tel Aviv. Some of them accompanied their owners to the festivities on the eve of the holiday and ran away when they heard the noise of the fireworks, and some of them succeeded in running away from their homes. We do our utmost to return the dogs to their owners, but unfortunately some of them do not have the electronic chips that are necessary for finding the owners, and sometimes the owners don’t even come to locate their lost dogs. It must be remembered that not all the dogs get to the various dog shelters.

 
Some of them wander the streets and are exposed to different dangers such as accidents with vehicles, abuse, hunger and thirst.

What to do?
In order to prevent the sorrow and frustration of the lost dog and the owners searching for it, the solution is easy – don't take the dog out of the house.

Try to arrange to walk the dog before the festivities begin and after them. Dogs that stay in the yard should be brought into the house so that they will be exposed to less noise. Furthermore, make sure that all the windows and doors in the house are shut securely. As mentioned, the spectacle of fireworks frightens many dogs, and many of them try to run away or hide. Pet your dog and reassure it and give it the feeling that everything is fine.

If, in spite of our pleading for you to leave the dog at home, you still decide to take the dog with you to the recreational sites, please watch over it very carefully and be sure to keep it close to you, secured with its leash and collar.

We wish you a Happy Independence Day!
