It’s flea season again. That means thousands of people who don’t know how dangerous Hartz and other over the counter flea products will start buying them to get rid of flea’s. That means the possibility of animals being injured and killed by these products. Education is a way to help insure this doesn’t happen.
How do we education people on the dangers of Hartz and the other over counter cheaper brands of flea and tick killers. We tell everyone we know to make sure they know . Makes sure to ask them to tell all their family and friends too.
If you see someone in a store looking at flea products say , ” Hello, have you heard about all the animal that are killed or injured by Hartz and other over the conter flea snd tick killers every yesr”? Good ice breaker. Then you can just tell them and tell them to check out HartzVictims.org if they don’t believe you. Tell them you just don’t want to see these products kill any more animals . Thank them for their time and thats it. Pretty simple and you may very well just have saved an animals life. Not bad for 3-4 minutes of your busy time.
If you want to be more pro active. You can make up a flyer to hand to people in stores or even leave on on the flea products display. It is not against the law to do that. Don’t toch the packages because that is. The worst that can happen and I have just heard of a few people who have been asked to leave the store. You could always leave a flyer for the store manager and ask them to remove the products too. Or take a stack to work and put them in the break room. Lots of ways to warn people.
After fighting Hartz since `1999, I can say it is highly unlikely that these products will be removed from sale. Far to much greed in the world to let animal lives stand in the way of the all might buck. It’s not right it’s just the way it is. The only thing you can do is report problems of course but on a one to one level spreading the truth, tell everyone.
If you want a flyer but to busy to make one or not sure what to put on it. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I just read a bunch of your posts. Many of them are asking HartzVictims to get this stuff off the market. There have many been attempts to do this . I even did a petition that had well over 10,000 signatures on it. Some actions myself and others have taken such as this web site ,mys site , others and blogs have resulted in the EPA taking some actions. We actually got them to emove a version of Hartz flea drops for cats, however Hartz just came up with a new products which is just as bad as the last. The Epa approved the product for sale and here we are still trying. Don’t ask us to do all the work. If your animal has suffered or died from these products you should be really angry. You should take a look at the Need Help page. Contact the resources listed, file the reports suggested and tell people about what happened warm them.. A few years ago the first civil case against Hartz was won. So now you can sue them and have a chance of winning danages. Prior to that case being won, every attempt to take Hartz to court resluted in the case being dropped due to Hartz counter suing.
