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


National Humane Education Society

"Our founding principles all relate to making the world a kinder, safer place for animals.  The use of constant fireworks at a stadium location not only adversely affects companion animals (cats and dogs), but also, wildlife is most certainly affected negatively.  Many dogs and cats are known to become frantic during firework displays and some show true signs of stress. 

Wildlife is also stressed by the thundering noise of fireworks and they exhibit similar reactions to that of cats and dogs.  On behalf of our 400,000 supporters, please take the compassionate stance and eliminate fireworks from the stadium planning in Eastlake.  Allow the pets and wildlife in your fine city a peaceful, fireworks-free existence."

Cheryl Spencer Scher, Humane Education Director,
