Humane Society Searching for Owner of Dog Spooked by Fireworks

After the 4th of July Weekend, local Humane Societies always see an increase in dogs and cats being found as a result of the holiday. Fireworks and other loud noises often frighten the pets and cause them to run away from home.

In Lincoln County, five dogs were dropped off after the holiday. Four of the dogs have been claimed, yet one remains. A small female Cocker Spaniel was found along East Main Street on the 4th of July.

Staff has not been able to identify her because she was not wearing a collar and does not have a microchip. Anyone who is missing a pet after the holiday is urged to contact their local humane society to find out if their dog or cat is being held there.

If dog is yours, contact the Lincoln County Humane Society at (715) 536-3459.
