Professor Pudding Pop and Captain Sushi need to find a good home

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Fourth of July is almost here and that means many of us will be enjoying fireworks displays, but your pets may think otherwise.

On Friday, Marissa DeGroot with the Dane County Humane Society stopped by to remind viewers of pet safety this time of the year.  DeGroot also brought along a cute pair of kittens.

Taking your furry friends to a neighborhood barbeque on any normal week can be fun for the pet, but when fireworks go off, it could lead to a runaway.

"This is the busiest week for stray animals to be brought into the shelter," says DeGroot.

DCHS recommends to keep you pets at home, collar them as well in case they get free, and if your pet is lost be sure they can find their way back home by having them microchipped and wearing tags.

DCHS offers microchipping for dogs and cats, $40 for dogs and $25 for cats, and custom ID tags.
