Antifreeze Alternatives 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.

Unemployed dogs 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!!

spay/neuter your pets…
So many 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.
