Keeping Pets Safe On Halloween

There's a lot to love about Halloween, but the Humane Society says, it may not be your pet's favorite holiday.

"It is important to think of Halloween from your pet's perspective," Stephanie Shain said in a press release. She's the director of outreach for the Companion Animal Section of The Humane Society of the United States. "A constant stream of strangers at the door, some 'creatures' they've never seen before or just a sharp increase in activity can be agitating or frightening. For their comfort and safety, the most considerate thing you can do for your own pet is keep them away from the evening's activities."

The Humane Society says the best place for pets on Halloween is a "safe, quiet spot, well out of the way of the activities."
