|Here I am advocating for kindness to animals on the 4th of July|
As the Executive Director of Dogs Against Fireworks (DAF), I have worked tirelessly to get regulations tightened. I should only suffer for one day, here in the City of Vancouver.... IF THEY ENFORCE THE LAW!
Just a reminder about the new fireworks rules for INSIDE THE CITY LIMITS:
Fireworks sales in the City of Vancouver is three days long, from July 2 through July 4. Retail stands open at 9 a.m. and close at 11 p.m. each day.
Inside the Vancouver city limits, fireworks use is ONLY legal on July 4 from 9 a.m. to midnight. Use is not legal on any other day of the year, including New Year's Eve.
Individuals who use fireworks on any day other than July 4 in the City of Vancouver may be subject to fines beginning at $250. Fines for use of illegal fireworks begin at $500.
I have heard that if people break this law, you can call 911 and report them. I hate to do that but I may just keep my cell phone handy while I am hiding in my crate before and after the 4th. My crate also serves as the DAF headquarters, by the way.
|This is what you'll see in tents all over Clark County.|
They must all be dog haters!
Please, be kind, Vancouver!
