Keep pets indoors during fireworks

Question: Is it true that the Hawaiian Humane Society supports bans against fireworks?

Answer: The Hawaiian Humane Society is not anti-fireworks but pro-pet safety. So many lost pets without ID end up at its Moiliili shelter after the 4th of July. Keeping pets safely indoors is the most important thing you can do to keep pets from getting lost. It's also useful to make sure pets are microchipped and wear a collar and tag, even if they're kept indoors. Pet owners may call 946-2187 to ensure their contact information is current with the Humane Society, which improves a lost pet's chances of finding his way home.
