Sioux Falls Animal Control is reminding you to keep a careful watch on your pets over the July 4th weekend.

Milo Hartson has been an animal control officer in Sioux Falls for over 12 years, and he’s seen what’s happened over the Fourth of July with pets.

"People let them go outside to go the bathroom and somebody is shooting off fireworks, the pet gets scared and they take off and run. We don’t want dogs getting hit by cars or anything like that, so make sure your dog is inside over the Fourth so nothing scares them off and they don’t get hurt."

If you see a pet in danger or distress call 911.
