cannabis roaches are toxic to pets

We aim to educate the public about
the safe disposal of marijuana products.
We are not against the use of recreational cannabis,
Some of us even use it ourselves.

About Us

Lagotto Dog Character

Brought together by our dog breeder!

We are a small group of dog owners who are connected through a private facebook group. The group was created by our breeder, Tracey as a method to connect puppy owners and provide a space for asking questions.

It's become a fantastic educational experience for many of us as we are learning about her ethical breeding practices. Including raising the puppies & even detailed grooming considerations for our Lagotto Romagnolo dogs.

When a few of the dogs in the group started to experience cannabis toxicity, Tracey posted a video and asked us to help raise awareness of the problem. Since then, we've had multiple articles published and 2 posters prepared, along with this website to tie it all together.

Asking for Help

Organizations Contacted

Mail has been sent to Parks Canada, cities & townships, Langley Animal Protection Services, the Canadian Kennel Club and SPCA. So far, there has been no action from these mail outs.

parks canada responded, apologizing because they do not get enough complaints about this issue to make it a priority for them at this time. They may use our poster if that changes. So if you have experience with a dog becoming ill from cannabis toxicity in a Canadian Provincial Park, please share it with them too.

We are doing this as a grass roots campaign. We all have unique skill sets and are helping each other to further the original idea of the project. We are determined to get the word out with or without help.

Do you want to help?

You can help raise awareness by:

  • Contacting your own city, provincial parks or other organizations dedicated to marijuana supply, pet supplies or pet health.
  • Tell your stories to friends & share them on social media.
  • follow or share our page with others.
  • Print out one of our free posters to post in your local community.
  • donate to offset the costs & further our cause.


Do you have skills or idea's that we can use?

If you have any skills that can help us and you are interested in volunteering to further the project, please contact the web master for discussion.

Our Social Media Sites

Find us on Facebook & Youtube

Potfreepet has a youtube channel & a facebook page that will hold updates, video's and stories of animals falling ill from cannabis toxicity.

Encouraging positive change requires keeping our tone upbeat & educational. Please refrain from name-calling and bullying recreational cannabis users online. Getting into online debates does not have to become inflamed arguments!

Once people are aware of the harm that dropping their butts on the ground can cause to pets, our goal is met. If people are aware and still choose to do so, that's a separate problem. Let's aim for simply raising awareness!
