Scoop The Poop - Even In The Rain
It may be cold and rainy outside, but that doesn't make dog poop any less harmful to people and the environment.

Dog poop is full of nutrients and harmful bacteria that can make people sick if they come into contact with it. Rain can also wash dog poop into local waterways, leading to pollution problems in our environment.

Whether you're in the park or in your backyard, remember to always scoop the poop and put in the trash.
