Fireworks Threaten Animals.!
Fireworks are not animal friendly.

Firework explosions can produce a blind panic in animals that can lead to serious injury, deep-rooted, debilitating fears, or even death. The ears of most animals are considerably more sensitive than the human ear; therefore, the explosion of a firework not only is proportionately more disturbing to an animal, it can also affect an animalís acute sense of hearing. Fireworks generate a noise level higher than the noise from gunshots and low-level flying jets, therein affecting their quality of life not only during their time at the shelter, but for the rest of their lives thereafter.

Dogs, cats, and other companion animals donít understand that the terrifying loud bangs are a celebration. One can only imagine what they think, given how much more sensitive their hearing is than ours. For animals, fireworks are no cause for celebration. Firework displays and celebrations bring confusion, anxiety, and fear into the lives of animals. Multiply that confusion, anxiety, and fear for shelter animals, whose stress is already at a heightened level.



We SCAN FOUNDATION studied this issue and concluded that fireworks and animals do not make a humane match. It is clear from research that using fireworks near animals is both cruel and inhumane. In this age of technology, we can create celebratory displays that are both thrilling and joyful without endangering our companion animals, Wild animals and birds. There is an evident need to protect our animals from fireworks harm.
This Diwali say NO to noise fireworks.
