July Fourth 2018 Report

Over the Fourth of July holiday, there is a spike in lost and found pets reported to PawBoost because of fireworks. Our fur babies become terrified and try to escape from the resounding blasts, but may not remember their way home. Check out this year’s infographic that breaks down important stats:

On July 5th, 3,479 lost and found pets were reported to PawBoost. From July 4th–6th, 6,988 alerts were sent out to the Rescue Squad. PawBoost alerts were viewed 32,738,853 times on Facebook. Wow! That averages 4,685 views per alert.

The good news is that 3,181 pets were reunited with their families. This wouldn’t have been possible without all of your shares!

    The 4th of July is the most dreaded time of year for me!!Just because of what the pets are forced to endure!Poor things!!Their hearing is so
    much better than ours.They are just running scared trying to get away from all that noise.It just makes me furious everytime I hear a firework
    and to see how frightened our little dog becomes.It’s just not fair at all that humans are torturing animals like this.

    This year was very busy on facebook with lost pets.I shared so many on my timeline just praying they would be reunited with their

  • Just Thank you for making this possible to help locate lost dogs and cats.

  • Fireworks were voted out years ago in FV & HB. Because of greed the cities have gone against the voters. Show these statistics to the council & ask them how much extra it costs for fire & police, not to mention animal control etc. allowing any fireworks just gives people a green lite to go bigger & all time of day & night. Fed up.

  • WOW! Amazing! What a wonderful site this is to help find our furry friends their families! Kudos to all those that help make this a great resource!
