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


North Shore Animal League America

"The harm that is caused to companion animals as well as indigenous wildlife in the area is indisputable throughout the humane community.  Companion animals reactive to sound sensitivity will go into a blind panic in the vain attempt to escape the threatening sounds and are frequently killed in traffic or lost to heartbroken families forever. 

Local shelters that end up with the lucky ones that survive are faced with the task of trying to locate their owners.  This very often fails depending on how far their flight has taken them.  We are the largest rescue and adoption organization in the world with millions of supporters across the United States.  We ask that the city of Eastlake restrict the use of fireworks at the new stadium."
