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 [email protected]



 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.
