LOS ANGELES (CBSDC/AP) — Liberty is loud and a lot of dogs have problems with those Fourth of July sounds of freedom, Erika Gamez said. She should know — she takes care of over 150 at work and five at home.
On Thursday, the 150 dogs, 150 cats and all the other creatures at the Rancho Cucamonga Animal Care and Adoption Center will be moved inside the buildings, said Gamez, the Southern California shelter’s animal care supervisor. Classical music will be played throughout the center beginning in the early evening.
It will get pretty noisy, Gamez said. There will be barking and whining and crying. If the fireworks don’t bother the cats, the noise from the dogs will, she explained. “It’s a trickle-down effect.”
