Protect pets from fireworks: RSPCA

Pet owners are being urged not to forget their animals this New Year's Eve and ensure they are protected from the noise of fireworks.

Animals are often frightened by fireworks, which can cause them to flee their home in fear, the NSW RSPCA says.

Many end up lost and injured, adding extra pressure to RSPCA shelters across the state.

"Dogs, in particular, are scared of the noise and often injure themselves while trying to escape and unfortunately many are killed," RSPCA NSW acting chief veterinarian Dr. Magdoline Awad says.

Owners should take extra precautions to ensure their pets are safe during festivities, including housing animals in a secure environment, keeping cats inside overnight, and horses stabled at a location away from fireworks noise.

The RSPCA says pets should also wear identification and be microchipped with up-to-date contact details.
