Dog waste is raw sewage, NOT fertilizer. Harmful organisms from dog poop transmit readily to children and adults and can survive for months on the ground. Just one week of accumulated dog poop can host 700 BILLION bacteria. Mowing just spreads the contamination everywhere.

Don't let children play in ground contaminated by dog poop.Shadowing the populace of North Central Texas is a hidden city with a population of 1.2 million. It’s as large as the city of Dallas itself, but without a single flushing toilet. That’s right. A metropolis equivalent to the 9th largest city in the United States but completely devoid of any sewage system other than “the backyard.”

Unfortunately, the story is not fiction. The catch: this city’s inhabitants all walk on four legs: dogs. And every day they add some 900,000 pounds of solid waste that directly contaminates ground water and washes — untreated — into our local creeks and lakes every time you water or when it rains. In other words, the “Don’t Mess with Texas” slogan is being violated in the worst possible way.

Dog waste is much more than a nuisance and a breeding ground for flies. Just like human sewage, untreated fecal matter from dogs is harmful to waterways. Rain washes dog waste and the associated disease-causing organisms, including giardia and salmonella, into lakes, streams, and the Trinity River via storm drains.

Enough bacteria make water unsafe for drinking and swimming. In fact, pet waste left anywhere is a public health risk. Pet waste on playing fields, sidewalks, or parks can contain worms and contagious diseases.

Even at home, responsible pet owners should double bag pet waste in biodegradable bags and put it in the trash to prevent water pollution associated with bacteria laden waste. Preventing dog fecal matter from entering the watershed means a healthier and safer community for everyone. And the ripple effects from that will improve life throughout the entire region. This is our Texas. Let’s keep it beautiful.

DNA Fingerprinting

fingerprintFor the first time in history, the environmental impact of dog waste has been fully identified thanks to the new technique of DNA fingerprinting. Scientists are now able to utilize this process to match waterborne bacteria to specific animal sources, including humans and pets. Due to the high popularity of keeping dogs as pets in urban areas, this forensic process uncovered dog waste as a significant contributor of harmful bacteria in our waterways. In some areas of the country, it is the fourth leading cause of water pollution.

Reasons to Scoop

  • Dog waste is NOT fertilizer. 
  • Dog waste is 100% toxic and has zero commercial value.
  • Dog waste contains 20 million germs per gram (1 gram = 1 kernel of corn).
  • Mowing dog waste contaminates your entire yard with trillions of live bacteria.
  • Parasites, germs, bacteria, pathogens & viruses in dog waste are harmful to humans.
  • Fecal bacteria stick to the bottoms of shoes and transfer readily to clean floors.
  • Fecal organisms can infect children, adults and other animals.
  • Roundworms and hookworms deposited by infected animals can live in the soil for long periods of time and can be transmitted to humans.
  • Storm water carries pet waste and bacteria directly into waterways.
  • Animal waste depletes the oxygen in the water and kills fish.
  • DFW's 1.2 million dogs deposit 900,000 lbs of toxic waste on the ground each day.
