Stay Safe & Support Rescue Pets this 4th of July!
I am thinking of you, your family and your pets during this Fourth of July holiday! 
Since the world is a bit crazier than years past, I just want to give a brief reminder to keep your eyes open, stay safe, and never put you, your family or your pets in compromising situations during this holiday season.. 
In California and many places around the country, there is an enormous amount of illegal fireworks being set of, as you already know. Your pets’ simply cannot stand this horrible time and they become stressed to the point they can break out of anywhere!
There are many herbal remedies available for animals that can be purchased on Amazon. Please remember to use Amazon Smile and choose Linda Blair Worldheart Foundation as your charity of choice. The herbal remedies are also available in many pet stores, which we highly recommend! From now through the Fourth of July, at any time, day or night, reckless people will be shooting off fireworks and trying to scare and hurt animals.
Keep your pets inside and monitor them when they are outside! Please, keep your cat safe as well! I don’t want to go into details about bad teenagers and people that can hurt your pets! If you see an animal being hurt, please call 911!
 I realize people want to go to parties and have fun but your pets have to be number one! Play gentle music loud enough to drown out as many noises as possible. TV programming that won’t upset your pets like a good movie or old-fashioned television shows that air constantly on different channels will also work to drown out the noise of fire crackers and M80s that unruly neighbors might be shooting off. Animals are able to hear the vibration way before you can! Put them away in a room… Just keep them safe! Don’t leave them in hot cars! 
We have been saving people’s pets that have been abandoned at shelters for the last three weeks, and now we are down to the wire as the holiday approaches! The shelters are clearing out as many abandoned pets, as they can to make room for people’s pets that run away from the fireworks!
 They are literally euthanizing really nice dogs and cats that just don’t deserve to be born to die because it’s the Fourth of July week! 
 Make sure your pets’ microchips are up-to-date! If you don’t have your dog or cat microchipped, maybe it is the time to make a veterinarian appointment and get one done! It’s a matter of finding your pet if they run away! Otherwise you’ll never see them again, that’s just the truth nowadays… I don’t want that for you. Below you will see some pictures of a few of the many dogs both small and large that we’ve been rescuing over the last few weeks. We still have many more coming in from a variety of shelters as we are trying to help out as much as we can all over Southern California. 
 Please donate! It is an emergency fund raiser to help as many as we can. We still need food to feed them, portable water that has to be trucked in since we are in the high desert, more housing for the dogs, emergency crates, baby pools for them to cool off in, in the high heat and we keep our window unit air conditioners working to cool down from the high heat so our electrical bills are pretty high!
No donation is too small or large! We are trying to raise $3000 for this Fourth of July holiday to provide the spay and neuters that many shelters are not doing for the rescuers. Right now they are just begging for us to get the pets out to make room! We service our community. I volunteer all of my time in hours, crisscrossing the country, trying to educate on animal welfare, spay and neuter and stamp out animal abuse!
I am forever grateful for your love and support, and as usual we need it now more than ever during the summer! I’m counting on you.
 From the bottom my heart,
 Thank You & Stay Safe,
Linda Blair

(June 27, 2012)—The Humane Society of the United States encourages pet owners to take extra precautions to keep their pets safe while celebrating the Fourth of July.

While parades and fireworks displays are beloved Independence Day traditions, for many pets the noise and commotion can be overwhelming. In fact, so many pets become frightened and try to flee the sights and sounds that animal shelters around the nation report a dramatic increase in lost pets during the holiday.

“The loud fireworks and large gatherings of people at public Fourth of July festivities can be stressful for your pets,” said Inga Fricke, The HSUS’ director of sheltering and pet care issues. “It’s best to enjoy the Independence Day holiday by ensuring that your furry friends are safe at home.”

To ensure your pets stay safe this Fourth of July holiday, follow these simple tips:

Keep all pets safely confined indoors on the 4th and the days leading up to it when people may be inclined to set off fireworks. There are many family and group activities that are perfect for pets, but a public fireworks display or any other type of gathering where fireworks will be set off usually isn’t one of them. It’s best to leave your pets safely indoors, preferably with a radio or TV on to dampen jarring noises. Pets usually kept outdoors should be brought inside as an extra measure of safety. And if you do take your pet with you to an Independence Day event, keep her leashed and under your direct control at all times.

Never leave your pet in a parked car. On a warm day, temperatures inside a vehicle can rise to dangerous levels within minutes. On an 85 degree day, for example, the temperature inside a car even with the windows cracked open can reach 102 degrees within just 10 minutes; after 30 minutes the temperature will reach 120 degrees. Even when the temperature outside is a balmy 72 degrees, the temperature inside your car can rocket to a fatal 116 degrees in less than an hour’s time.  

Consult your veterinarian if your pet is distressed by loud noises like fireworks displays. Your veterinarian may be able to recommend medications and techniques to help alleviate your pet’s fear and anxiety.

Ensure your pet is wearing a collar and identification tag with current contact information so you can be reunited quickly if your pet does escape. All pets, even those kept indoors full-time, should wear collars with identification tags at all times. Indoor-only animals can become so frightened during fireworks displays that they take desperate measures to escape the noise, such as breaking through window or door screens. As an extra precaution, it’s a good idea to have your pet microchipped, with your current contact information registered with the chip company. If your pet does become lost, contact your local animal control and surrounding shelters immediately. If you find a lost pet, either take her to the address on the tag or bring her to the local animal shelter so she can be reunited with her family.
