We love dogs and all the gifts they give, well all except one--- poop.  Poop that has not been picked up can be washed into storm drains or into nearby waterways.  Pet waste can be a major source of bacteria and parasites.  And it is not very fun to step in... ever.  So, whether you walk your dog on public streets or let your dog roam your back yard, remember to scoop the poop.

On the Right Side of the Law

Scooping your pet's waste is not only neighborly and loving to your pet... it's the law.  City of Casper Ordinance 6.04.90 says:  "It shall be the responsibility of the owner of a dog, cat or other animal to keep his property free and clear of animal waste" and "the owner of every dog, cat, or other animal is responsible for the removal of any excreta deposited by his/her animal on public walks, recreation areas, or private property other than that of the owner."
 
Simply put... you should scoop the poop every time and every where.

The Facts about dog poop

Dog Poop Doesn't Biodegrade Like wild Animal Poop
Because we feed our dogs food that's very different from the food wild animals eat, dog waste does not biodegrade quickly like wild animal waste.  And because of the sheer number of pets in neighborhoods and in local parks, this hardy dog waste accumulates.  The only way it disappears is when it gets picked up by dog owners.

Dog Poop Contains Harmful Bacteria, Parasites
Dog waste can contain harmful organisms like E. coli, giardia, salmonella, roundworms, hookworms, and cryptosporidium.  These can be passed on to you or your pet, and may cause health problems.

Dog Waste Pollutes Groundwater, Water Bodies
Bacteria in dog waste can harm water quality in creeks and rivers, and alter the ecosystems of these stream corridors.  Waste can be carried by storm drains into the North Platte River.
 
 
Look for the Scoop the Poop team at community events.  The team will be taking pledges from pet owners and handing out "iscoop" pet waste bag holders and bags!  Show everyone that you are a responsible pet owner by sporting the iscoop holder everywhere you go!

Pickle‚Äč

Pickle is very excited to be this year's "Scoop the Poop" spokesdog.  You will see Pickle on billboards, newspaper ads, internet ads, and even hear her name on the radio.  Pickle is proud to spread the message that responsible owners scoop.  An older dog than past spokesdogs, Pickle is the voice of experience and reason.  She knows that people hate stepping in dog poop and she wants to spread the word that dogs don't like it either.
