For as long as the dog has been man's best friend, dog waste has posed a menace to our society
Know what’s worse than picking up dog waste? Stepping in it. Did you know, each year,
countless people end up in hospital emergency rooms from slipping on dog waste? Their
sustained injuries often include sprained or broken bones, cuts and bruises, and head trauma.
Today, many cities and towns are imposing fines from $50.00 to $750.00 for NOT picking up after
Know what’s worse than that? Swimming or fishing in contaminated water. But the worst of all is
drinking water that may have dog waste in it.
It is estimated that 3.6 Billion pounds of dog waste is produced each year in the United States. But
sadly, many irresponsible pet owners think it is OK to let their dog “GO” anywhere and just leave
it behind. Pet waste left on the ground, especially near streets and sidewalks, gets washed into
storm drains and drainage ditches, which flow to the local waterway. This water, called runoff,
does not get cleaned or treated along the way, so anything that goes into the storm drain or ditch
goes into the water. Bacteria, parasites, and viruses found in pet waste can be harmful to water
quality and human health.
We need to do our part to stop dog waste from being a menace to our society and environment.
Here are a few things You can do to help.
1. Pick up Your pet’s waste every single time.
2. Deposit pet waste bags in to nearest garbage container.
3. Never wash pet waste into the street or storm drain.
4. Take advantage of complimentary waste bags offered in dispensers at Your local park.
5. Always use biodegradable waste bags. Grocery bags NEVER degrade in our landfills.
6. Carry extra bags, just in case your dog “Goes” more than once. Make them available to
other pet owners who may have forgotten to bring one.
7. Teach children how to clean up after their pet.
8. Put a friendly reminder on the bulletin board at your local dog park.
9. Tell friends and neighbors about WHY they should pick up after their pet.
10. Put a lawn sign on your property, reminding other pet owners to Stoop N Scoop.
