As most of you are aware there is a petition concerning this grave injustice being perpetrated by Hartz Mountain Company on the cat and dog loving consumers and their animals. The petition may be found at this URL http://www.petitiononline.com/hartz/petition.html
With what I and others view as a sell out of the main plaintiff in the class action suit to allow Hartz to settle out of court, (if you are willing to cave in for the price of the product and Vet fees
incurred). The wishes and hopes of so many to have Hartz Flea and Tick Drops removed from sale to the public has all but vanished from site.
There are those who will continue to do anything and everything possible to see that no more animals are injured or die as a result of the use of this product. The options we have are few in number. The petition is the best recourse we have left at this point At present it has 649 signatures.
We need more signatures to have this petition taking seriously by the EPA and The HSUS would also like to keep track of these cases. (For more about this see the end of this message)
If you have not signed it please do so. Tell your friends, family and co works about what you know this product has done. Ask them to sign the petition
I bet you haven’t seen any new news stories about Hartz have you? No, because there haven’t been any. We NEED one badly.
One that will mention the petition and give the URL to it. Ya all following me? I hope so. We need to keep this in the news, keep it fresh in the publics minds.
Anyone have any type of news contacts at all???
Has anyone’s cat or dog recently been a Hartz Victim? If so don’t be bashful, now is not the time. We need you. We need you to start making noise to your local news stations, TV, radio and news papers about what Hartz did to your beloved companion. We need you to sell the idea that the newsperson should mention the petition in the story.
If your game for doing this but not sure how or want help please just ask we are 100 % behind you. After all we all hate Hartz for what they did to our critters and that they intent to continue to hurt animals just so they don’t lose any possible money from the sale of this horrible product.
It all comes down to the animals and we know all to well what Hartz has and will continue to do to animals if they are not stopped. This maybe the last way we can stop Hartz. We need your help to stop Hartz. No one person is going to take down Hartz, but together I honestly think we can do it.
By the way if you think ,’The EPA won’t listen,”
well I think a 1000 or more signatures will make them listen. I think it may give them the added pressure to continue/reopen the investigation of Hartz and all the claims that have been filed since 2002 when they were doing the investigation.
They are not at all happy with the studies Hartz submitted to them on the product. They said they were inconclusive and did not meet the guidelines set down by the EPA for testing of these types of products. They told Hartz they wanted to see testing done by independent sources on the product.
Please do whatever you can to help in the fight against Hartz. Make noise, call or write letters to news stations, radio stations, newspapers.
Write your government officials ask them to bring pressure on the EPA over the tremendous numbers of complaints filed over the years about animals being seriously injured and/or dead after this product being applied by humans that do read and follow the instructions. make sure if you filed a complaint about the product that in the file it contains your words saying you read and followed the directions and you did not use a dog product on a cat.
If you don’t feel you got that across in the complaint you have already made. Get hold of who ever took the complaint. Demand that they open the file, add that to it and resubmit it with the addition. It is within your civil rights to do so.
That is very important, because that is what Hartz is leading the EPA to believe. That you were not intelligent enough to buy the correct product or follow the directions on the package.
Well, I think you are intelligent enough to have bought a cat product if you have a cat and a dog product if you have a dog and I think you did read and follow the directions. The fact that you are online reading this pretty much proves that you are capable of reading.
I and the innocent animals thank you for your help.
