South Georgia animal shelters said they still have some dogs they believe ran away in fear July 4th fireworks.

Every year, the Bainbridge-Decatur County Humane society says they receive calls from owners whose pets bolted because of fireworks.

Shelter Manager Ashley White said while they didn't have as many lost dogs as last year, they still haven't been able to reunite seven dogs with their owners.

They hope social media will help.

“It has been really helpful when people can look and see a picture,” said White.  “We post it as soon as the animal comes in and they can say, 'I know that dog, I know the owner,' and help us contact that person.”
