FOX21’S Pet of the Week Tips

What are some tips for living with pets during the New Year’s celebrations?

  • Exercise your pet during the day so they are more likely to rest through the festivities.
  • Keep pets indoors away from doors and windows.
  • Have a safe hiding space for animal to go that’s familiar and quiet with food, water, toys, and bedding.
  • Remind guests not to feed your pets food or alcohol.

What do you do if your pet is lost after the festivities?

Before New Year’s Eve, make sure your pet has a collar on, updated tags, and a microchip with updated information. You can also visit to see if your animal was found and turned into HSPPR.
