A Safe Haven

Since pets can become stressed and excited, have a safety spot available for them away from the festivities. Also, have fresh water and toys and a comfortable place to sleep.

Make Sure They Don’t Runaway

Since people are coming in and out, it’s very easy for a pet to sneak out. So get your pet’s microchip and tag info up to date. Notify the neighbors you are having a party and to call if they see your pets unattended.
