NEW YORK (AP) — Edward James Olmos has a message for pet owners on the Fourth of July: Stay home.

Noisy fireworks on America's birthday can startle animals and cause them to run away. Olmos has teamed up with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals to urge owners to comfort their pets or at least leave a TV or radio set on so they don't get as scared during the blasts.

Says the actor: "If you stay with them, it helps them."

Olmos plans to stay home with his beloved Moe, a 10 year old Labrador retriever whom the actor has tweeted about — photos included — several times.
