Dogs in Austin: 215,000

Dog poop in Austin: 100,000 pounds per day

That’s 100,000 pounds of toxic material on the ground each day.

When not disposed of properly, this toxic matter enters our waterways… and eventually our mouths.

When you consider that each gram of dog feces contains 23 million fecal coliform bacteria (ten times that of a cow), the “feces effect” is clear… increased risk of:

  • Giardia
  • Roundworms
  • Salmonella
  • Other viruses and parasites

So don’t be a poo-petrator.

Just scoop it.
