Pets & Bonfire Night

RSPCA Cymru has received more than 150 calls in the last five years related to concern for animals and fireworks.

Between 2013 and 2017, the charity received 152 calls from across Wales from members of the public concerned that fireworks could be having a damaging impact on animal welfare, 16 across RCT.

The animal welfare charity is now bracing itself for more calls about animals negatively impacted by the entertainment explosives, as Wales prepares to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night.

RSPCA Cymru wants to see the use of fireworks limited to agreed traditional dates – such as Guy Fawkes/Bonfire Night, New Year’s Eve, Chinese New Year and Diwali.
