BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The Fourth of July doesn’t arrive for another month, but that hasn’t stopped some from celebrating early, the boom of fireworks becoming a familiar refrain the past few weeks.
The noise has proven irritating to some residents, but the explosions are positively terrifying to our four-legged friends.
In recognition of the impact fireworks have on pets, the Bakersfield SPCA is offering yard signs for a minimum $25 donation that say “Fireworks Scare Us” and show a dog covering its ears and a fearful cat peering up.
“We wanted a way to let the community show their pets’ fear of fireworks in a tangible way,” said Bakersfield SPCA Executive Director Julie Johnson in a news release. “
To get a sign, go to the SPCA at 3000 Gibson St. then call 661-323-8353, extension 2. Staff will take payment and bring a sign to the car.
