Dog Owners, Please Read!

As the weather gets nicer, more folks will be out and about walking their dogs. Please be respectful to your fellow citizens and neighbors by picking up after your pet no matter where they decide to go; whether it be at the park, along the street, or in someone else’s yard…

Besides being unsightly and smelly, bacteria from dissolving pet waste can contaminate grass and soil that kids play on. Dog waste can take up to 12 months to fully break down and parasites and bacteria can remain in the soil for years. By not picking up after your pet, you are putting people and other pets at risk for exposure to this harmful bacteria.  That same bacteria can also be washed into our storm water systems, impacting the health of plants and fish in local creeks and ponds. Studies have shown that 30% of bacteria found in watersheds come from pet waste!  Unlike cow manure, dog waste is not a natural fertilizer. In fact, it will actually kill grass if not picked up.

So please…when you take fido out for a stroll, remember to take along those baggies and do the right thing! There is also a convenient pet waste station located in the park. Thank you for doing your part to keep Halsey clean and safe for our residents, both two legged and four legged!
