(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - On this holiday weekend, animal experts are reminding pet owners that most pets don't like fireworks.

The Humane Society says they see an influx of pets this weekend, and owners need to keep them safe at home.

Experts advise you not take pets to fireworks shows, shut your windows, and turn on the radio or television to distract them from the noise.

They also recommend you not take pets outside.

"The backyard is not secure on the 4th," said Elizabeth Richer, with the Humane Society. "If they get scared, they can scale fences that they'd never attempted to do before."

That goes for cats as well.

Make sure your pet also has a current ID tag, because if they do get out, you want to be able to find them quickly.
