More details

Battersea recognises the distress fireworks can cause to pets. As a result of this, Battersea would be supportive of practical and proportionate change to legislation that would provide greater control over when and where fireworks are used, whether this concerns restrictions on their usage, or reducing the overall noise levels.
This would also minimise upset for animals and their owners and reduce the numbers of lost animals that end up rescues like Battersea because they are so alarmed by the loud bangs.
