 Dog Waste is an Environmental Pollutant

As a pet owner, please do your part to prevent pet "poolution!"  To prevent contamination of our local waterways, please pick up after your pet!
Did you know:
  • There are bacteria, viruses and parasites in your dog's poop?--YUCK!
  • The EPA has labeled dog waste as a non-point source pollutant, similar to herbicides, insecticides, oil, grease and toxic chemicals.
  • Fecal coliform bacteria can cause intestinal illness and serious kidney disorders in humans.
It's the law! Section 4-8 of Broward County's Chapter 4 Ordinance requires pet owners to pick up after their dog.
