The Patriot Jet Team will take to the local skies over Lake Washington Friday through Sunday Aug. 2-4 from 1:45 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. It?s all part of the Boeing Air Show at Seafair this weekend.
If you can hear the jets at home, keep your furry family members safely indoors in an enclosed room, preferably one without windows. If you are expecting guests, keep your pets in a room with plenty of fresh water, that is off-limits to guests. ? Surround your pets with their favorite toys and other familiar objects to create a calming environment. Play soothing music and keep the room as quiet as possible by closing doors, windows, and blinds.
The biggest risk is that pets will get loose and become lost. Even if a pet is secured inside, the sound of jets flying overhead can cause them to panic. Your companion animals should be microchipped and they should be wearing an identification tag on their collar. If you have moved, make sure that the microchip company has your current address and phone number.
The Seattle Humane Society offers $20 microchipping (includes national registration) for pets in low-income households. Appointments are available on a drop-in basis 7 days a week from 2 p.m. ? 4 p.m. For more information call (425) 641-0080 or visit the microchipping page on our website at seattlehumane.org.
