For a Happy July 5th! Prepare for the 4th!

GDRNT wants you to be prepared and protect your pets. Was thinking in a pandemic, with more people staying home and fewer events that July 5th will be slower for shelters. But it is 5 am on July 4th and just on my Next-door there are several dogs who have gotten loose during (illegal?) firework displays or parties.


GDRNT wants you to have a Happy FIFTH of July! Seriously. The 5th of July is single busiest day at animal shelters across the country. Fireworks and Cookouts are fun but can be hazardous for your pets. Loud explosions, flashing lights, open gates are just some of the hazards for your pet. Did you know that 30% of all “lost” animals annually occur on the evening of the 4th of July; most of these runaways could have been prevented with a few simple measures. Many animals are terrified of fireworks and even those normally unafraid of loud noises can find the barrage of lights and booms too much. So while you are preparing to enjoy your celebration take a few minutes to prepare your pets.

Remembering their Service This Memorial Day

“Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men have died to win them.”- Franklin D. Roosevelt

We can only do what we do, because others have given so much. We ask that this weekend you take some time to remember those who have lost their lives serving this Country.

Memorial Day commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. In other words, the purpose of Memorial Day is to memorialize the veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. We spend time remembering those who lost their lives and could not come home, reflecting on their service and why we have the luxury and freedom that we enjoy today.
