Dogs often run away from the noise and are unable to find their way home again. They are often run over by cars as they flee in panic. Animals who are too close to fireworks explosions often suffer significant burns and eye damage, and the noise can permanently affect their sense of hearing.
There are several celebrations that all pets in South Africa hate. These include Christmas, New Year, Guy Fawks, Halloween and the Muslim celebration of Eid. Fireworks are often used in these celebrations, and the noise these fireworks make is very frightening to animals.  Dogs in particular exhibit symptoms of severe stress when they hear fireworks going off. Fireworks sound different to your dog than other natural noises such as thunder. Using fireworks near animals is inhumane - please sedate your pets and keep them close to you when fireworks are being lit up. 
Ensure that your pets have indentification, collar with ID or chips, so that you can more easily get them back should they run away during the noisy celebrations. Report all violations of the municipal by-laws, particularly the times when fireworks are allowed to be used in your area.
