Pets scared by the boom of fireworks have long been known to hide and even run away--but now, there is an app for that.
A new smartphone app from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals helps owners find their lost pets.
July 5 is reportedly the busiest day of the year at U.S. animal shelters, as they fill with lost dogs and cats awaiting reunions.
Now, the ASPCA app can help you set up a tactical search plan to avoid that day-after-fireworks ritual.
The app can also help prepare for disasters and other stressful events in advance.
The app can be downloaded on the ASPCA web site.
