Pets

We all love our pets, whether they live in our own home or we admire someone else's.

An important part of having a pet is maintaining their health 

 

Pets, especially dogs and cats, are heavily affected by the use of pesticides in our community. They are more vulnerable to the chemicals used to treat weeds, due to their proximity to the ground, their investigative nature, and unprotected paws. Pets come in contact with pesticides by digging, sniffing, licking, and eating unknown objects.
