Patti Jo Beal started this petition to Animal lovers

On the 4th of July I was standing in my front yard, it sounded like a war zone. I have never quite understood the need to set off M80's in a neighborhood. I tolerate it though, as many of us do. I have a dog that requires sedation this time of year, she is an absolute wreck for days after the fourth.

I see dozens of lost and found pets on Facebook that have more than likely bolted from their homes out of fear. Then the final straw was a post from a friend. Her horse was spooked by fireworks and it ran head first into a metal gate, it was severely injured. All this trauma caused to our pets needs to stop and it dawned on me that we need to do something!

I have worked at a veterinary clinic and I have seen first hand dogs injured and killed after escaping their homes during the days around the fourth. The dozens and dozens of prescription for sedatives for pets. It is wrong that we are allowing this. Not to mention the fire danger. Help me to make firework illegal in the state of Oregon!

My goal is enough signatures that we can present the petition to the powers that be in Salem and get the ball rolling toward change. Stop the stress and injuries with me!
