Fireworks during the 4th of July celebrations can frighten pets, but there’s a free mobile app for your phone that you can use to help find them if they run off and get lost.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals shows pet parents exactly what to do when a pet goes missing, and helps them create a personalized pet recovery kit.

If your pet runs off because of loud fireworks, you can use the ASPCA app to build a lost pet digital flyer that can be shared instantly on your social medical channels.

The free app also allows pet owners to store vital medical records and access information to care for pets during natural disasters.

Click here to download the app right to your phone.
