It's the time of year again when fireworks are terrifying our beloved pets and all of the wildlife surrounding us.
Why should our celebrations and festivals, for which fireworks are readily available, be allowed to cause such distress to the animals in and out of our care. These poor animals don't understand what is happening and it could leave them scarred for life, mentally and physically!
There are so many accidents every year, causing great expense to the NHS and Fire Services throughout the country. We, as tax payers, have to foot the bill for this.
I have a small dog, who is petrified each time she hears a loud firework. She shakes from head to toe and gets herself into a real panic. She looks at me pleadingly as if to say "Daddy, please make it stop". I feel completely useless as there is nothing I can do to pacify her. Just looking at my fur baby being so terrified makes me want to cry. Isn't it about time that we got rid of fireworks once and for all?
These antiquated methods of celebration have long outlived their use and the time has come for change.
I am asking all dog, cat and small animal owners to sign this petition to ban fireworks for good so we can petition the UK government to change the laws surrounding fireworks.
