When everyone in the United States celebrate the 4th of July. It’s another holiday after New Year’s eve for the pups to hide under the beds. Loud noises and fireworks are like horror movies to them, watching and listening to one of their worst nightmares. However, while our loved fur balls have the privilege of hiding under the bed. Dogs in the shelters are deprived of such benefits.

One of the shelters in the United States have been observing this instance and had decided to help these pups keep calm throughout the bombastic holiday

Veterinarian Marty Becker says “When they have these noise phobias, it’s horrible. A lot of times these dogs will self-mutilate. I’ve had dogs come in that have run through a plate-glass window. They think they’re going to die, and when you think you’re going to die, you do crazy things.”

Calming the helpless little puppies at the shelter is a new Independence Day tradition at Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC)

The director of the shelter Ben Swan states that “It was overwhelming to see how the community responded, it really helped spread our message that MCACC is here to help.”

After the event volunteers had built an abiding bond with the puppies they looked after. As per the MCACC “Many participants developed lasting relationships with the shelter, returning to provide foster care, adopt a pet or volunteer.”
