Many dogs lost on 4th of July waiting at shelters

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The Fourth of July fireworks were beautiful to look at but some pets didn't enjoy them as much as their owners. 

The animal services department says most dogs are afraid of fireworks and three times as many people as usual brought dogs to animal shelters across San Diego County Saturday.

"Dogs and fireworks do not get along well. As soon as the fireworks started last night, we started getting calls of dogs running loose. So from nine o'clock last night til now, we've already taken in 33 dogs," S.D. Animal Services deputy director, Daniel Desousa said.

If you lost your dog, you're encouraged to check in with your local animal shelter to see if your dog is there.
