SAN DIEGO (AP) - Dozens of lost dogs have been turned in at shelters in the San Diego area following a three-day holiday weekend marked by numerous fireworks displays, which are known to scare canines.

San Diego’s KFMB-TV (https://bit.ly/29hJuJk) reports 59 dogs were at shelters Monday afternoon with more expected. The station says 67 dogs were brought to shelters within a few days of Independence Day last year. San Diego County Animal Services officials say dogs can panic at the noise of fireworks and try to escape.

If the dogs aren’t picked up by July 12, the county says they’ll be put up for adoption the next day.
