Best Bully Sticks says, “Prepare for Pet Fire Safety!"
Home fires are the most preventable, yet one of the most common family disasters in America. The American Red Cross responds to more home fires than any other disaster. 88% of American families say that their pets are an integral part of the family unit, yet house fires affect 500,000 pets every year. In fact, pets start approximately 1,000 house fires each year!
July 15th marked the 3rd annual National Pet Fire Safety Awareness Day. Best Bully Sticks believes that you can prevent fires in your home and protect Fido from fires by following these easy tips.

These might be a great idea, but when you leave home, it’s the best idea to turn them off.
