Animal Shelters Flooded with Lost Pets

Animal Shelters Flooded with Lost Pets

The day after the Fourth of July is always the busiest day of the year for animal shelters.

At the Animal Foundation on Mojave and Bonanza Roads, they are dealing with an influx of pets, many of them dogs. The animals are frightened by fireworks and run. The shelter says it took in 115 dogs on July 3. The normal number is 60. Just 20 of those animals were reunited with their owners. There is no word yet on how many animals it took in Wednesday or Thursday.

The shelter says the jump in lost animals around the Fourth of July is a reminder for everyone to make sure pets have proper identification.

"The single most effective thing is for us to identify them and we cannot do that if they do not have a tag or a microchip or both.  A tag is the first line of defense. They can lose those especially when they are in a panic situation, but it literally is the most effective way to get a dog back,” Andy Bischel with the Animal Foundation said.

Las Vegas Family Warns of Fireworks Dangers

LAS VEGAS -- The Fourth of July brings a sad reminder to one valley family of what can happen when illegal fireworks are used.

Twenty-two-year-old Kacey Barlow was killed two years ago when a cannon overstuffed with gunpowder exploded.

Louis and Pam Barlow celebrate the Fourth of July differently than they once did. For the past few years, the holiday has been a solemn one as they honor their son.

"It's like a nightmare played over and over again," Louis Barlow said.

The family set up a memorial to remember their only son, Kacey. It's a reminder of what can happen when people are not careful with explosives.
