Community Pet-Waste Concerns
It Takes a Village…to Scoop Poop

In the dog-eat-dog world of real estate, an area is only as good as its steadily increasing property values. And for areas overrun by smelly piles of dog poop, the “feces factor” could prove the weakest link to many homeowners and rental property managers.

Don’t let pet waste become your neighborhood’s nuisance. You should consider calling DoodyCalls to keep your area sanitary and aesthetically pleasing. Not only will DoodyCalls maintain the cleanliness of your community, we will also help design long-term waste elimination plans.

The American Pet Products Association (APPA), estimates Americans own more pets than ever before, with 83 million dogs as of 2013. Dog waste is a smelly, dangerous health hazard. By the last count, there are more pets than people in the U.S. Likewise, the pet services industry, which includes pet waste removal services, continues to expand rapidly—its current $55 billion value is growing annually at a rate of approximately 10%.

Unfortunately, the rise in dog waste as a major cause of pollution continues to develop as well—so much so, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was forced to deem it a “nonpoint source of pollution” in 1991, which put poop in the same category as oil and toxic chemicals!

Beware of Dog (Poop)

According to EPA, a single gram of dog feces can contain 23 million fecal coliform bacteria, which are known to cause cramps, diarrhea, intestinal illness, and serious kidney disorders in humans. EPA even estimates that two or three days worth of droppings from a population of about 100 dogs would contribute enough bacteria to temporarily close a bay, and all watershed areas within 20 miles of it, to swimming and shell fishing.

n the end, it is best not to let sleeping dogs lie when it comes to issues of communal cleanliness. After all, vigilant sanitation could mean the difference between your area’s designation as prime real estate, or an area that has gone to the dogs.
