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


In Defense of Animals

"As a veterinarian who cares deeply about the welfare and rights of animals, I can attest that the disruption caused by fireworks presents a very real and serious threat to both companion animals and wildlife. 

The loud and sharp explosions frighten many companion animals terribly, often causing them to flee and become lost or to suffer physical harm as a result of their terror.  Local wildlife also suffers from acute stress reactions as well. 

On behalf of our 80,000 members, I would like to express support for OADL's campaign to protect local animals from the proposed use of fireworks in the Eastlake planned stadium."
