2011 Puppy Up! Walk

2011 Puppy Up! Walk
It began with a promise to raise awareness of canine cancer one mile, one city, and one person at time. Luke Robinson with his two dogs walked 2000 miles from Austin to Boston to fulfill the promise he made to his dog Malcolm who died from this horrible disease.

2 Million Dogs was formed on the belief that if 2 dogs can walk 2000 miles to bring awareness to cancer surely 2 million dogs can walk 2 miles.

Save money, prevent pollution

Save money, prevent pollution

Did you know the energy used in the average home can cause twice the greenhouse gas emissions of a car?

There are several ways you can reduce your carbon foot print and September is the perfect time to start making changes.  That is because the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) is promoting pollution prevention.

The Federal Pollution Prevention Act, passed in 1990, made a declaration that pollution should be prevented or reduced at its source whenever possible.  To honor this anniversary, ADEQ urges the public to prevent pollution in their day to day lives.
