ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The booms and bangs that come with celebrating for the Fourth of July may cause stress for family pets, but one local organization wants to help in the event that this happens.
The City of Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department is offering to microchip dogs and cats for free before the holiday.
The Animal Welfare Department’s Deputy Director, Paul Caster, joined KRQE’s This Morning team with tips on how to keep your pet safe. Watch above.
A large percentage of animals that come in to the shelter over the Fourth of July weekend are due to them trying to escape the fireworks. Some owners have not micro-chipped their animals, and this can result in the animal being adopted out to another family.
