RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Independence day brings festivities, fireworks and fun to some, but pets may not necessarily enjoy the noise.

The Humane Society of the Black Hills tells KELO-TV (http://bit.ly/29k1hhW ) that July 5 is usually the busiest day of the year with people looking to reclaim their pet that ran off during the noisy celebration.

The Humane Society of the United States encourages people to keep their pets indoors during celebrations, preferably with the TV or radio on to provide some background noise. Pets that must be outside should be kept on a leash.

The nonprofit says pets can become so frightened during fireworks displays that they may break a window or door screen in an attempt to escape the noise.

The Humane Society of the Black Hills will open Tuesday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. so owners can reclaim their pets.
