Fireworks may be beautiful to us, but they traumatize animals. 
No cruelty is justifiable.

Stop Fireworks
A Project of the Ohio Animal Defense League
A campaign to
stop fireworks from traumatizing animals


American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

"We know that fireworks have a very detrimental effect on all animals - whether they are human companion animals or wildlife.  The animals are sensitive to the loud noises, the smell of the explosives, and even the effects the fireworks have on humans.  This seems especially dangerous in a densely populated area.  On behalf of the ASPCA's 685,000 donors, we would ask that fireworks be removed from the intended Eastlake stadium."

Larry M. Hawk, D.V.M., President,
American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, New York, NY
