Did you know that a single gram of dog waste can contain 23 million fecal coli? Or that dog poop can carry diseases that can be passed to humans? Well, if you didn't before, now you do!
On a serious note, scooping the poop is so important to keeping our community clean and safe. While we scrunch our faces, and at times let out an audible, "Ew," at the sight of poop, many of our dog companions have a very different reaction ... so the least we can do is keep pups like Andy from eating the poop!
Hear from our all-star, platinum volunteer, Jess Borda, and sweet-faced Andy, on the importance of scooping the poop below!
