There is a good boy golden retriever in a flashback that remains unharmed. There is also a good boy cane corso named Sampson who remains unharmed and gets to eat a steak.

Not on-screen, but it's implied and we see the aftermath.

We do see a character get murdered on screen twice and it is bloody but I’m not sure if I would say “excessive”, like we don’t see guts and stuff? but it is enough to make someone uncomfortable if you’re bothered by gore in general.

Head gets slip open. You can see it happening but there is relatively little gore to the scene

Several. Boy gets jump scared when he sees the kidnapper in the corner of basement starting at him. Several jump scares when they show the kidnapper with the mask. Jumpscares pretty much every time boy talks on the phone - they suddenly show a dead child. Later scene when girl is riding her bike, four dead children block her way.

The phone ringing is very loud and jarring and there’s also a bit when Finney is communicating with Vance that gets very loud. When he snaps the Grabber’s neck, the sound is pretty disgusting

Cops are present, but the show does not propagandize or glorify them. In fact, they're quite useless.

The ringing is very loud and there are a few other moments where the audio gets extremely loud. There’s some slurping and chewing sounds as well. The dad seems to show symptoms of misophonia himself, although that might be because he is hungover

there’s a potentially claustrophobic scene where the main character is trying to break out of the inside of a freezer

No, but the first two children that we see taken and murdered are not white.

It is not implied that he grabs them for sexual purposes. If anything its about punishing "naughty children". Plus, it feels quite harmful to say "He's a pedo.....so hes gay then". I think the above comment should be removed.

Yes, a latino child is called a “b**ner” and the main character is called a “f*g”.

No, but it is implied that The Grabber’s intention is to sexually assault Finney, and that he assaulted the previous victims. It is never explicitly said, but it is implied by him saying “I would never make you do anything you wouldn’t… like.” and the ghosts saying that they would play “naughty boy” with The Grabber and the second part is The Grabbers “favorite part”.
