New Year’s Eve Weekend Reminder: Fireworks and Pets Don’t Mix

As we approach the holiday weekend, please remember that New Year's Eve celebrations
can be a potentially dangerous and frightening time for pets. This year, fireworks will be
allowed in the Municipality from 9:30pm on December 31 until 1:00am on January 1st.

Also, many people travel with their pets to see family and enjoy the holiday. Help ensure the
health and safety of your pet by following these tips:

· Keep your pet in a SECURE and quiet setting, like your home (make sure all windows
and doors are closed);

· Turning on a television or radio can mask the noise of fireworks, helping keep your pet
calm;

· Be certain your pet has a current MOA dog license, a current identification tag, and
its rabies tag securely fastened to its collar;

· In the unfortunate event that your pet does escape, check with the Anchorage
Animal Care and Control Center ASAP; and

· While the Center can be reached by phone at 343-8122, it is always best to come in
person to look for your dog every 2-3 days, as no one can identify your animal better
than you.

Please direct further questions to Anchorage Animal Care and Control at 343-8122 or access
information on our website, www.muni.org/animal.
