The San Diego Humane Society recovered nearly 100 stray animals yesterday, the day after Fourth of July.
The Humane Society says they most likely ran away from their homes during the fireworks celebrations. Anyone who lost a pet is advised to check the San Diego Humane Society’s Lost and Found Pets page at sdhumane.org/services/lost-and-found.
If you have lost a pet, here are tips to find the pet.
- Don’t jump in your car to go look for it. “They’re operating on fear. . The only thing they want is their people and what you do when you go looking for your dog is you take all of your smells with you and now that dog goes everywhere you went looking for you. You can’t catch a moving target; they can’t catch a moving target.”
- Leave your door open for 24 hours, and placing a dirty sock at the front door.“ You want to take a sock turn it out by the door, put another one up high so the wind will carry that smell,.
- Those who find a stray pet are urged to try to locate the owner in the area first. The pet may have tags with a phone number, which could prevent a ride to the shelter.
- Call the Humane Society and post to social media.
- Get your pet micro-chipped

The fireworks show at Disneyland just started for the first time in over a year due to the pandemic.
Well it is back now but it has changed. Disney has removed “ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls” from the greeting to kick off the “Happily Ever After” fireworks show. Instead, the announcer says, “good evening, dreamers of all ages.” The change is “part of a broader effort” for inclusion. Disney has also announced other changes to rides to be more welcoming to all guests. This includes changes to Splash Mountain to remove racist undertones and removing negative depictions of native people in the Jungle Cruise. Also employees will now be able to wear gender-neutral haircuts and have looser restrictions on dress code.
