Animal Foundation took in 250 animals

LAS VEGAS - If your pet was frightened by the fireworks and ran away, you might want to check with the Animal Foundation. More than 250 animals have been taken in since Sunday.   

Fireworks are the reason for most of the animals ending up at the Animal Foundation over the holiday. It's expected the number will go up in the coming days as more animals are picked up or turned in.

Emily Casillas turned in a dog she found Tuesday night near Sunrise Mountain.

"The dog was shaking under the car. She's a nice dog, very dog-friendly too," Casillas said.

The Animal Foundation suggests checking its website first if you're looking for a lost pet. Photos and descriptions are updated hourly.

You will need an ID and rabies vaccination certificate or any other identifying paperwork to pick up your pet. If your pet has a microchip, the person who the pet is registered to must pick up the pet.

All reclaim fees are being waived from now until July 10. Adoption fees for dogs and cats six months and older will also be waived.
