TOLEDO, Ohio (WNWO) - Lucas County Canine Care and Control said between June 30th and July 9th, 76 stray dogs were brought in.

So far, just about half were returned to their owners. LC four says between warm summer days, and fireworks, it's not uncommon to see this many.

If you're still missing your dog, it's best to check with LC four.

"You need a photo ID and we will make sure your dog has a current license, and your dog has to be current with a rabies vaccine," said Laura Simmons-Wark, with LC four.

To avoid this, keep dogs with you and inside during loud events like the Fourth of July.

You should also make sure your dog is always wearing a name tag and collar.
