Fireworks and heat are a couple of things pet owners are going to have to contend with over the next week or so. Fireworks are illegal within the city limits of Missoula and on all public lands. Lots of pets really have a hard time dealing with all the noise and activity this time of year.  The Humane Society has some good advice; keep pets inside, make sure they have a collar and ID tag, don’t leave them in the car. In fact it might be a good idea to leave them home.  If you do, make sure there’s lots of water down for them. If they can get outside make sure the can find some shade.
