Pet Waste Campaign

Scoop the Poop!
Scoop the Poop!

Why?

 

Did you know that it is unlawful to leave your pet's waste in our city's parks? (Code of the City of Colorado Springs 2001, as amended 9.9.301) Pet waste is a huge problem in our city. Not only is it a nuisance, but it can also carry viruses and bacteria that are extremely harmful to humans and animals in our watershed. In addition to the risk of diseases, the organic matter and nutrients contained in pet waste can degrade our water quality. YOU can make a difference! Please help educate our citizens on the importance of cleaning up pet waste.

Want to help? Become a "Scoop the Poop!" Pledger and you'll receive a FREE pet waste bag dispenser for your leash. 

  • You must pledge to always clean up after your dog, even in your own yard.
  • You must pledge to carry extra doggy bags on your daily walks.
  • You must pledge to encourage other dog owners to clean up after their pets.
  • And you must pledge to educate others about the 'Scoop the Poop!" Campaign.
