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 Cat Protection Association

"We always hear of the dangers to children from fireworks.  But what we rarely hear about is the danger to companion animals.  One of the scariest days of the year for our dogs and cats is the 4th of July.  Their ears are more sensitive than ours are and they are terrified of the noise and often try to run away from it.  They become disoriented and can easily get lost.  This campaign to make the public aware of the dangers of fireworks is very important.  We give it our full support."

Louise Holton, Founder & President,
National Cat Protection Association, Mount Rainier, MD
