The hazardous component of antifreeze is ethylene glycol.
Antifreeze made with propylene glycol is a less hazardous,
although still toxic in higher quantities, option for many
applications. Although slightly more expensive, you can find
two propylene glycol antifreeze products marketed under the
brand names LowTox ® and Sierra.

have higher tendency to develop behavior problems……In the wild, dogs,
like other animals, need to look for their own food and water, and that
can take up a good part of their day. Now that they are house pets, and
become domesticated, other than eat, sleep, play and do their business,
they have a lot of time on their hands to kill. Depending on their age,
breed and personality, some can be very, very creative- so, give your
dog a job- make them look for their food/treats/toys- Some toys (blue
kong toy) are designed to allow people to hide foods in it- make it hard
for them to get…-pack the food/treat real tight, melt cheese at bottom
of the blue kong toy etc.,
they can spend hours trying to get their favorite food/treat out!! Try
it- they'll like the sport and work diligently on their new job!!

prosecuted animal cruelty incidents in Massachusetts:

victims were owned dogs and cats.
Prosecuted abusers were
typically young males with a small percentage of females.
Common methods of abuses were beat, shoot, stab, throwing hard
objects, bait, burn, cut out ears or
Only about half of the
abuse cases were prosecuted and led to fine, probation, jail… while
the rest were dismissed, denied, or withdrawn…
spay/neuter your pets…
wonderful pets died needlessly each day..... according to an article in
2001, more than 12 million cats and dogs enter US shelters annually.
Few of these animals were reclaimed, and many shelters lack space to
keep even the most adoptable animals.
On average, only about 1/3 of animals put up for adoption actually find
homes, for the rest, euthanasia.
Depending on the shelter and the state, some use injection of an
overdose of a barbiturate anesthetic named “sodium pentobarbital” while
others still employ the gas chamber or other less humane methods.
There are just not enough homes for all the lost/abandoned
animals. Please spay/neuter
your pets and help to be one step closer to prevent pet overpopulation.
