I live in the Bahamas and it is so sad to see the way animals are treated. Even the Humane Society has tales of poisoning animals and locking a live one in the freezer before it was dead. This is the BHS in Nassau. Some animals starve at the pound. I know all people aren´t like that but where are they at these facilities. This country needs a huge spay neuter return that the government will pay for.

Good advice. Native plants eliminate the need for pesticides and this benefits both pets and children--so many forget that not only do our pets develop cancer from repetitive contact with our yard pesticides but so do our children (it just shows up later in our children). Thanks for writing this.

I love being echo friendly and I always am and I also always check when buying shampoo, make-up ect, that it is echo friendly and also that it is not tested on animals. I also check this when spending the night some where other than home and always bring my own just in case to be prepared. Also did you know that smart cars are not echo friendly and that they run on gas. One idea is instead of going to buy fertilizer use the messes in the backyard from your dog it seems to work on strawberry's, Raspberry's and pear trees oh also apple trees as well. If you have a rabbit and grow blueberries then use it's poo for fertilizer the waste from your own animals can be cheapier and more echo friendly to the enviroment than the stuff that you have purchased from the store with diffrent chemicals pumped into it.

that is a very good sugestion. the thing is fresh poop is sometimes to "hot" and should be aged. we used chicken poop in my garden

I like the statement "Scoop poop" (and with recycled bags) so that waste's harmful bacteria doesn't enter the water system.
So do i read into this that people would actually flush the "waste" down their toilet ?
How about just burying out in the back yard ??? YA THINK???? For me, i can do this, i live in the country.....

must've glossed over that water system part. who flushes pet poop? my dogs leave about 3-5 pounds weekly...that's a tall order for any toilet.

quit having conflicts w/wild animals altogether! last weekend, a fox was spotted in my parents neighborhood, prey in mouth in their driveway. first thought is for the outside accessible kitties, but after a little research i told them not to worry about it. their neighborhood is overflowing w/rabbits due to lack of a natural predator and fox rarely ever hunt a cat, so it's actually the perfect place for the little foxy. i'm just worried some idiot is gonna catch a glimpse of this guy, not read anything about them, and go after him themselves. barbaric solutions are for the ignorant.

I definitely "pass" already with "Giving Back To Wildlife", but I guess I could/should make improvements indoors. Buy, hey, at least I already have "green carpeting"....
