This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government

Rejected petition Make all fireworks noise free.

Fireworks are a part of our history, but the noise of them creates so much stress on our pets and other animals, we need to now compromise. Fireworks without noise can still be enjoyed for a visual display and our pets will incur less stress, as it is the noise that causes distress and disturbance.

More details

Bonfire night seems to get longer every year. Animal owners cannot sedate or prepare their animals for weeks or days on end. Many dogs and cats bolt in fear at the noise of fireworks, or spend nights in terror. Fireworks are no longer confined to 5th November, which causes many nights of stress to our pets. Fireworks without noise would allow people to celebrate with fireworks, but be kinder to our pets.

This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s not clear what the petition is asking the UK Government or Parliament to do.

It's clear that you are concerned about the noise levels from fireworks, but we're not quite sure what you mean by "make all fireworks noise free".

If you mean that you would like Parliament to change the law so that all fireworks which make a noise are banned, you could start a petition calling for that action.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
