KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -The Fourth of July can be one of the most stressful times of the year for pets.

The Young-Williams Animal Center partnered with Petco to release a list of tips to help keep pets safe during Fourth of July celebrations:

Be Alert

YWAC advises pet owners to be alert before and after the holiday as many celebrations last more than one day.

Keep Your Pets Secure

Pets can be panicked by fireworks and other loud noises. Many animals respond to the loud noises by running and hiding.

Check Your Yard

Pet owners should check their yard for loose fencing, gaps and other places pets could escape from.

Update Pet Info

Owners should update their pet’s tags and microchips
