4th of July Pet Adoption Special & Safety Tips
The Corona Animal Shelter is celebrating Independence Day with a special Pet Adoption event. What better way to kick off your celebration than by adopting your very own pet-triotic friend!
Monday, July 2 through Saturday, July 7 all available dogs and cats can be adopted for only $20, which includes the cost of spay and neuter. A $15 dog licensing fee and $5 microchip fee will still apply. Check out adoptable dogs and cats online at www.PetHarbor.com or by downloading the City of Corona Mobile App.
As you take care of your pet-triotic friends, help take the fear out of fireworks by following a few helpful Pet Safety Tips:
- DO NOT take your pets with you to noisy celebrations; leave them at home, where they are safe inside.
- DO get a workout. Take your pets for a walk, play fetch, or do any safe activity to tucker them out beforehand.
- DO NOT leave your pets in a car while you enjoy a fireworks show.
- DO drown it out and divert attention. Shut all windows, blinds/curtains and doors, and leave the TV on to help mask the noise.
What to do if your pet goes missing:
Visit the Corona Animal Shelter on July 5 and each day thereafter to find your missing pet. Bring a recent photograph and complete a lost animal report. The Corona Animal Shelter will return all currently licensed dogs to their owners without charge through July 8.
The Corona Animal Shelter is located at 1330 Magnolia Avenue in Corona and is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday. For more information, please visit www.CoronaCA.gov/Animals or contact the shelter at 951-736-2309.
