This push is on again this year, my friends. Each year for the past three years we have been able to travel to Washington, DC to meet with the EPA and lawmakers to discuss the issues with harmful flea and tick products and safer alternatives.
1. Chip In – The ChipIn System lets people microfund projects and causes. This money gets us to Washington, houses us, provides money for outreach and helps us continue to film our documentary which will help other causes make a difference. You can help by contributing at the CHIPIN site by clicking here.
2. If you are on Twitter, please retweet the following message:
3. Contact via email, phone or fax the following people at the FDA and request that they respond to our meeting request. Don’t be shy – feel free to blow up their fax machines. Aundria Arlandson and I have attempted to get a meeting with the FDA, who regulates a small amount of these products, for the past several months, emailing daily after the first few requests went unanswered. This tactic works and was able to get our foot in the door with the EPA our first year in DC. We scored that meeting in 72 hours because of your efforts. Here’s the contact info:
(no fax number)
Dr. Bernadette Dunham, Director of Veterinary Medicine

Executive Secretary, Jennifer M. Cannistra
Deputy Executive Secretary, Barbara J. Holland
We realize many people are having a hard time these days. Not to worry! Even $5 helps us towards our goal! Sharing is also as important because through you sharing this post and information, you will be a ripple, passing on our story. Many ripples become great waves and those waves reach a point where they create change.
