Some of you may wonder why Town Ordinance limits Fourth of July fireworks fun to only one day. We have so many friends and neighbors in our community that were combat veterans, have PTSD, or have other issues with the loud noises that are affiliated with fireworks. Even more of our neighbors have pets.

Did you know that across the country more pets are reported lost in the days closest to July 4th. If your pet is not licensed, microchipped or has a collar with identification, we have no place to take them other than the Longmont Humane Society, which has been nothing but wonderful to all of our found pets.

Generally people can prepare their pets and themselves for the loud bangs and pops from Fireworks on the Fourth of July, It's the random other days that people choose to celebrate our wonderful independence that they are not ready for.

I am asking you to please be considerate of your neighbors and refrain from fireworks displays until the Fourth of July. Remember fireworks that go up in the air or explode are illegal in Colorado. Our Officers will handle the fireworks complaints as they can, but please be patient as priority calls must be handled first.

We have included this infoslide courtesy of 24 PetWatch to help you all prepare your pets for the sounds of what they believe is Armageddon. Be safe!
