With a short life span, it’s inevitable that young ones will see that first pet pass away. The first instinct is to flush it down the toilet, which is wrong and harmful for several reasons:
- This creates infestations in storm drains, ponds and rivers that kill the ecosystem, creates a competitor and predator to local fish and affect the growth of native plants.
