U.S. Navy Blue Angels will be in town
for Seafair
From Seattle Humane

While the Blue Angels roaring across the sky can be captivating for humans, the loud jet engines can be petrifying for our pets.

With a little planning, you can keep your animals calm and safe during this week's Boeing Seafair Air Show.

The aerobatic event is in its 70th year and takes place at Genesee Park on Lake Washington.

The U.S. Navy flight demonstration squadron will hold two separate practices and three days of performances:
  • Thursday, August 1, from 11am to 1pm and 
  • Thursday, August 1, from 2:30pm to 3:30pm. 
  • Official performances are from 3pm to 4pm daily from Friday, August 2 through Sunday, August 4.

To keep your furry family members safe and happy throughout Seafair, we recommend taking the following precautions:
  • Put your pets in an enclosed room. Much like with fireworks during the Fourth of July, loud noises can cause animals to panic. In this panicked state, pets have been known to break through windows or screen doors and get loose. If possible, place your animals in a room with no windows or outside doors.
  • Make sure your pets are microchipped and wearing an identification tag on their collars. Additionally, now is a good time to contact your microchip manufacturer and ensure that they have the correct address and phone number on file.
  • If you have guests during the event, ask them to consider your pets' designated room off-limits, as new and/or extra people can also stress an animal.
  • Create a calming atmosphere for your pet. Make sure they have plenty of fresh food and water. Surround them with their favorite toys and other familiar objects, such as a beloved blanket or a piece of your clothing with your scent.
  • Keep the pets' room as quiet as possible by closing doors, windows, and blinds. Consider playing ambient noises or soothing music.

Seattle Humane offers $20 microchipping services (including national registration) to income-restricted pet owners. Walk-ins are welcome from 2pm to 4pm daily at the Schuler Family Medical Center at Seattle Humane. For more information, call 425-641-0080, or visit the microchipping page on the Seattle Humane website.
