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


Oohmahnee Farm Animal Sanctuary

"We are strongly opposed to the use of fireworks due to the ramifications it has upon the environment and animals, both domesticated and wild. 

So often we see the aftermath of celebratory fireworks when injured animals are brought to our sanctuary for veterinary care.  Waterfowl become entangled by remnants of high-grade fireworks when they land in waterways and ponds.  Fish ingest materials from the fireworks and die and sometimes cause the deaths of other animals that eat the fish.  Deer and other wildlife become frantic and frenzied during displays.  The noises and visuals resulting from fireworks terrify domestic animals. 

We are at a place in our history where we are obligated to take into account the impact that our actions have on other species."
