BLUE ANGELS SAFETY ALERT
Seattle Humane offers pet safety tips for Seafair

hr bar red

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 1, 2012

The Blue Angels roaring in our skies at Seafair may be a captivating event for humans, but the loud noise can be hard on our companion animals. With a little planning, you can keep your pets calm and safe at home.

The squadron will take to the local skies Thursday, August 2 for practice flights, and Friday through Sunday, August 3-5 for the Boeing Air Show at Seafair.

Keep your furry family members safely indoors in an enclosed room, preferably one without windows. If you are expecting guests, keep your pets in a room that is off-limits to guests, with plenty of fresh water.
 
Surround your pets with their favorite toys and other familiar objects to create a calming environment. Play soothing music and keep the room as quiet as possible by closing doors, windows, and blinds.

The biggest risk is that pets will get loose and become lost. Even if a pet is secured inside, the sound of the Blue Angels flying overhead can cause them to panic. Your companion animals should be microchipped and they should be wearing an identification tag on their collar. If you have moved, make sure that the microchip company has your current address and phone number.

The Seattle Humane Society offers $20 microchipping (includes national registration) for pets of income-restricted guardians. Appointments are available on a drop-in basis 7 days a week from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. For more information call (425) 641-0080 or visit the microchipping page on our website at seattlehumane.org.
