FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - With the Independence Day holiday weekend wrapping up and fireworks calming down, the number of missing animals is on the rise.
Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control says they've seen a rise in lost animals over the holiday. It's typical to see a spike in lost animals during times fireworks are going off. Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control received 25 more calls of lost animals than they did the week prior, but they already returned half of those animals by Monday morning.
Holly Pasquinelli with Animal Care and Control says this year they were prepared for all the lost animals.
And if you're worried about losing your animal, Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control encourages you to get them microchipped and to keep the information up to date.
