Frightened Animals Find Shelter With Lubbock Animal Services

The animal shelter is full and officials say fireworks are to blame. The Lubbock Animal Service has received over 200 calls from residents who lost or found animals.

Another fifty dogs were picked up over the weekend. Many ran away after hearing loud fireworks on the 4th of July.

"The animals get scared. They were intimidated, they don't know what's going on, things exploding in the air. Most animals look for any way and every way they possibly can to get away from it," Laura Forsythe, Field Supervisor at the Lubbock Animal Services said.

Forsythe encourages owners to leave their pets at home when watching fireworks next year. In the meantime, anyone who has lost a pet is urged to go to the animal shelter to pick it up. There is $30 pick-up fee.
