TUCSON, Ariz. — Pima Animal Care Center says some pets were rattled from the fireworks on the Fourth of July.

PACC says July 5 is the highest intake day since fireworks are scary for pets.

PACC is expecting between 100 to 200 pets who have gone astray, and are lost.

One family at the center found a lost dog while on a bike ride.

The family says "We took him to pet smart first thing in the morning cause we know that they check for microchips but they said he was not and so then we went home and went on craigslist to see if someone has posted that they were missing their dog and that's when I saw the posting that you should bring them here."

PACC says they are working to get pets returned to their owners.

One new tool they have online is a map, which identifies pets who have been found or reported lost.
