How did this Scoop That Poop Campaign get started?
The idea came about last February. We just moved back from HI to our home state IL. At that time we were living in a high-rise in the city. It was winter and so cold. We saw/met many city dogs and noticed that they don’t pick up their dog’s waste. Living in HI was upsetting to see that too many locals don’t scoop their dog’s poop. HI beaches are dog friendly but many owners just don’t pick up with the mentally it will get washed by the ocean water. Last March, when we moved back to our home in the suburbs, it was quite disturbing to notice that some owners really just don’t pick up their dog’s poop.
We felt that our blog can serve as a positive voice for this campaign and reach out to all dog owners to pick up their dog’s poop. We also want to bring awareness of the importance of scooping dog’s poop. Scoop That Poop Campaign is a FUN way to make a positive difference. We’ve created a logo for Scoop That Poop and asked three of our blog friends to join us, Gizmo, Garth, and Oz. Scoop That Poop will be an on going campaign and will keep you posted for our up coming plans.
5 Reasons WHY Scoop Your Dog’s Poop?

3) Some Dog’s waste are unhealthy and may contain harmful organism such as E.Coli, campylobacter, parasitic worms, toxoplasma, and giardia.
