DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The message is loud and clear every year about now.

Pets are easily scared by fireworks.  Animal experts warn owners to keep their pets in a safe spot away from the booming holiday.

Animals often run off and end up at a shelter.  The Montgomery County Animal Resource Center says it received 50 animals over the course of the Fourth of July weekend.

Only four have found their way back home.  ARC encourages owners to sign up their pets on the Finding Rover app. The app uses facial recognition technology to help find a lost pet.
