Animal Welfare Society Offers Tips to Keep Pets Safe at Halloween

• Keep pets safely inside, away from trick-or-treaters and other Halloween activities. This will ensure that pets won’t become frightened or feel threatened at the sight of noisy costumed children. Frequently opened doors provide a perfect opportunity for escape, which can go unnoticed during all of the commotion.  Be sure all pets are wearing collars with ID tags in case of accidental escape.
 
• Keep candy out of your pet's reach. Candy can be harmful to pets and chocolate is toxic to cats, dogs, and ferrets.  If you suspect your pet has ingested a potentially dangerous substance, please call your veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435.
 
• Keep pets away from decorations.
