4 out of every 10 households in America own a dog. In 2000 we owned
68 million dogs 45% of them were big dogs.
Dog feces carry bacteria that can cause diseases in humans, especially children. Left to decay in the grass and on sidewalks, the feces run into our streams, lakes and seawater, causing massive pollution.
What can we do?...
As concerned citizens, good neighbors and conscientious parents, we need to start with our own pets and clean up after them. Every pet owner can make a big difference.
